Abstract

Whether specific cognitive deficits related to frontal-lobe dysfunction that have been reported in individuals with phenylketonuria (PKU) are also characteristic of mild hyperphenylalaninemia (MHP) was investigated. Tests ofexecutive function and control tasks not assessing executive function wereadministered to a group of individuals with MHP and a group without MHP, similar in age, gender, and IQ. Tests of academic skills and behavior-ratingquestionnaires were also administered to the group with MHP. No group differences were found for any measure, suggesting that the mild elevations of phenylalanine in individuals with MHP are not sufficient to produce behavioral and cognitive impairments characteristic of PKU.
