Why does Pyruvate Dehydrogenase occur and what are the symptoms ?

Hi I would like to know if you are aware of any misdiagnosis of pyruvate dehydrogenase disease? We have just received the diagnosis for our daughter and wonder if it is the correct diagnosis? Could it be B12 shortage or something instead? BR Camilla, Denmark
