Almost all affected children have delayed development. Additional signs and symptoms can include weak muscle tone (hypotonia), seizures, diarrhea, vomiting, and low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). A heart condition called cardiomyopathy, which weakens and enlarges the heart muscle, is another common feature of malonyl-CoA decarboxylase deficiency. ​ This condition is also known as: malonyl-CoA decarboxylase deficiency, malonic aciduria, malonyl-coenzyme A, decarboxylase deficiency, MCD deficiency.
