Glycogen Debrancher Enzyme Deficiency Myopathy

imageGlycogen storage disease type III is a rare inherited disease caused by decreased activity of glycogen debranching enzyme. It affects primarily the liver, cardiac muscle, and skeletal muscle. Pure involvement of the skeletal muscle with adult onset is extremely rare. We report on a patient with myopathy due to glycogen storage disease III, and describe the clinical features, and pathologic and genetic findings.
