Introduction: Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a rare autosomal-recessive disorder inherited in accordance with the law of segregation. Detection tools for people with PKU can include Sanger Sequencing (SS) and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). Diet therapy, Large Neutral Amino Acids (LNAA), and Specific Nutrient Combination (SNC) can help alleviate people with PKU. In the future, genetic manipulation techniques can help to eliminate PKU.
