A man with type III glycogenosis associated with cirrhosis and portal hypertension.
Type III glycogenosis, an inherited disorder of glycogen metabolism that results from reduced or absent activity of the enzyme amylo-1,6-glycosidase (debranching enzyme), has not been frequently associated with cirrhosis and portal hypertension in adults. An adult Caucasian man with well-document type IIIa glycogenosis, who presented with a variceal hemorrhage secondary to hepatic cirrhosis, is described here. No other cause of cirrhosis was found.
