Description

Phytanic acid is a saturated 20-carbon branched-chain fatty acid which can only be derived from dietary sources. In cases of peroxisomal disorders, elevated levels of phytanic acid have been observed, and this is linked to diseases such as infantile phytanic acid storage disease and Refsum’s disease.1
