AMINO ACIDS, QUANTITATIVE, CSF

Test Code: AACSF
Description: CSF amino acids are evaluated when there is a suspected defect in glycine or serine metabolism including glycine encephalopathy (nonketotic hyperglycinemia).

NOTE: When testing for glycine encephalopathy, please submit a plasma sample collected at the same time for amino acid analysis, so that the ratio of CSF glycine to plasma glycine can be determined.
