NIH Rare Diseases:47 Adult-onset citrullinemia type II is an inherited disorder that causes ammonia and other toxic substances to accumulate in the blood. The condition chiefly affects the nervous system, causing confusion, restlessness, memory loss, abnormal behaviors (such as aggression, irritability, and hyperactivity), seizures, and coma. These signs and symptoms can be life-threatening. The signs and symptoms appear during adulthood and are triggered by certain medications, infections, surgery, and alcohol intake. The features of adult-onset type II citrullinemia may also develop in people who as infants had a liver disorder called neonatal intrahepatic cholestasis caused by citrin deficiency (NICCD). In many cases, the signs and symptoms of NICCD resolve within a year. Years or even decades later, however, some of these people develop the characteristic features of adult-onset type II citrullinemia. Adult-onset citrullinemia type II is caused by mutations in the SLC25A13 gene. This condition is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. Last updated: 7/11/2011
MalaCards based summary: Citrullinemia, Adult-Onset Type Ii, also known as citrin deficiency, is related to failure to thrive and dyslipidemia caused by citrin deficiency and citrullinemia, type ii, neonatal-onset, and has symptoms including coma, confusion and hepatic steatosis. An important gene associated with Citrullinemia, Adult-Onset Type Ii is SLC25A13 (Solute Carrier Family 25 Member 13). Affiliated tissues include liver and brain.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:69 Citrullinemia 2: A form of citrullinemia, an autosomal recessive disease characterized primarily by elevated serum and urine citrulline levels. Ammonia intoxication is another manifestation. Citrullinemia type 2 is characterized by neuropsychiatric symptoms including abnormal behaviors, loss of memory, seizures and coma. Death can result from brain edema. Onset is sudden and usually between the ages of 20 and 50 years.
