Deficiency of D-bifunctional protein causes a severe, Zellweger-like phenotype. Different mutations were found in humans causing the total or partial loss of this enzyme's function. We report a family with severe Zellweger-like syndrome with a typical presentation of neonatal hypotonia and seizures, biochemical evidence of peroxisomal disease, and a novel mutation C.1052T>G (V351G) in a homozygous state.
