We report a case of a 13-year-old boy with arginase 1 deficiency carrying a new variant in ARG1. Sanger sequencing identified the compound heterozygous variants: NM_000045.4: c.365G>A (p.Trp122*)/c.820G>A (p.Asp274Asn). Although not previously reported, the p.Asp274Asn variant is predicted to have strong pathogenicity because it is located in a highly conserved domain in the protein core and arginase activity in the patient was below measurement sensitivity.
