Inherited metabolic diseases

The inherited metabolic diseases (IMD) section publishes original research (clinical, biochemical, and genetic), well-phenotyped case series, clinical trial outcome reports, and comprehensive reviews of rare inherited disorders of metabolism.

Submissions that increase our understanding or make new observations regarding IMD are particularly welcome. Detailed natural history studies of well-phenotyped case series, and publication of consensus statements on investigation and management of IMD, including collaborations between centres, are encouraged.
