Sarcosinemia is characterized by an increased concentration of sarcosine in blood plasma and urine. It can result from an inborn error of sarcosine metabolism or from severe folate deficiency because of the folate requirement for the conversion of sarcosine to glycine. It is thought to be a benign condition causing no symptoms.
