Classical Homocystinuria (HCU) is a rare genetic disorder present from birth. In HCU, the body is unable to break down an amino acid called methionine. This causes a build up of methionine and another amino acid called homocysteine
which affects the eyes, brain, bones and blood vessels and can cause serious health problems when untreated.
