Hyperinsulinism/hyperammonemia (HI/HA) syndrome is a rare disorder presented with recurrent hypoglycemia and elevated serum ammonia, which may lead to development delays, permanent neurologic damages, if it remains underdiagnosed. It is caused by activating mutations in the GLUD1 gene which encodes the intra-mitochondrial enzyme glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH).
