Glycogen storage disease type Ha(GSD la), also known as generalized glycogenosis, cardiomegalic glycogenosis, and Pompe disease, is a very rare form of glycogenosis. The authors reported a case of GSD J a in an eight months old girl who presented with respiratory problems, marked hypotonia, cardiomegaly, and macroglossia. The diagnosis was made on clinical grounds including pathologic findings of muscle biopsy although alpha-1,4 glucosidase deficiency was not proven by an enzyme assay.
Key Words: Glycogen storage disease type II a(GSD II a), Alpha-1,4 glucosidase
