In recent years, the widespread use of routine biochemical assays has led to increased incidental findings of hypertransaminasemia. in a variable percentage of the pediatric cases, the increased serum levels of aminotansferases are due to metabolic and genetic disorders which, in a first phase, may be clinically silent. a high level of suspicion is desirable for an early diagnosis of these disorders that, in the absence of a specific treatment, generallyhave a poor prognosis.
