Pricing Comments

This test is also offered via our exome backbone with CNV detection (click here). The exome-based test may be higher priced, but permits reflex to the entire exome or to any other set of clinically relevant genes.

An additional 25% charge will be applied to STAT orders. STAT orders are prioritized throughout the testing process.

Turnaround Time

3 weeks on average for standard orders or 2 weeks on average for STAT orders.

Please note: Once the testing process begins, an Estimated Report Date (ERD) range will be displayed in the portal. This is the most accurate prediction of when your report will be complete and may differ from the average TAT published on our website. About 85% of our tests will be reported within or before the ERD range. We will notify you of significant delays or holds which will impact the ERD. Learn more about turnaround times here.

Clinical Features and Genetics

Clinical Features

3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency is a disorder of mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation characterized by hypoglycemic seizures and hyperinsulinism (HI) within the first 3 years of life (Martins et al. 2011; Clayton et al. 2001). Clinical features include hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia, poor appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, hypotonia, and liver problems. Most cases are responsive to treatment with diazoxide.


Recessive inactivating HADH pathogenic variants cause 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency with hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia (Martins et al. 2011; Clayton et al. 2001). The HADH gene (9 coding exons) encodes 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase which catalyzes the reversible dehydrogenation of 3-hydroxyacyl-CoAs to their corresponding 3-ketoacyl-CoAs in mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation. Genetic defects of HADH found to date include missense, nonsense, splicing, small indels and one large deletion (Human Gene Mutation Database).

Clinical Sensitivity - Sequencing with CNV PG-Select

Homozygous HADH pathogenic variants were identified in 11 (10%) of 115 unrelated patients with diazoxide-responsive hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia who were negative for pathogenic variants in the hyperinsulinemia-associated genes ABCC8, KCNJ11, GCK, and HNF4A (Flanagan et al. 2011).

To date, only one large deletion was found in HADH (Flanagan et al. 2011). Large deletions and duplications are expected to be rare.

Testing Strategy

This test provides full coverage of all coding exons of the HADH gene, plus ~10 bases of flanking noncoding DNA. We define full coverage as >20X NGS reads or Sanger sequencing.

Indications for Test

Candidates for this test are patients with 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency. Testing is also indicated for family members of patients who have known HADH mutations. This test may also be considered for the reproductive partners of individuals who carry pathogenic variants in HADH.
