Congenital disorder of glycosylation, type ib

Causes

What causes congenital disorder of glycosylation type 1B?

Congenital disorder of glycosylation type 1B is caused by having a mutation (or change) in both copies of an individual's MPI gene. A gene is an instruction to our bodies on how to function and develop. The gene that has a mutations in this condition is called the MPI gene. When a person has a mutation in both copies of their MPI gene, the gene cannot work properly.

Genetic counselors in the United States can be found on the National Society of Genetic Counselors website.
