Abstract

Several inherited metabolic disorders have been associated with stroke particularly in newborns, children, and young adults. In part 1, we discussed the genetics, stroke pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of Fabry disease and mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, and strokelike episodes. In part 2, we overview homocystinuria, organic acidurias, and urea cycle disorders.
