Brain abscess in glycogen storage disease type Ib.
Neutropenia, neutrophil dysfunction, and recurrent infections are important manifestations of glycogen storage disease type Ib. We report here a child who has had adequate metabolic control, but developed brain abscess, an infection not previously described in this disease. This case provides further evidence that the neutrophil anomaly is related to the basic enzyme defect, not secondary to the metabolic derangement.
