Fatty acids are carboxylic acids with a long aliphatic tail, and naturally occurring fatty acids usually have an even number of carbon atoms. Short chain fatty acids have less than six carbons, medium chain have six to twelve, long chain have 14 to 20, and very long chain fatty acids have 22 or more carbon atoms. Fatty acids are important sources of fuel during fasting or times of high metabolic demand, especially for heart and skeletal muscle, and are oxidized by mitochondria to produce ATP. Patients with a fatty acid oxidation disorder are unable to use fatty acids for energy and can present with hypoketotic hypoglycemia, liver disease and failure, skeletal myopathy, cardiomyopathy or sudden death in early life, and severe episodes of metabolic decompensation can occur during periods of fasting or illness.
