Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by deficiency of branched-chain keto acid dehydrogenase complex, which is required to metabolize the three branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), leucine, isoleucine and valine.

If untreated, progressive brain damage causes coma, seizures and death usually within a few weeks. EEG is an essential investigation in a neonate with progressive encephalopathy and seizures.
