Glycogen Storage Disease IV
What are the signs and symptoms of glycogen storage disease IV?
There are several subtypes of glycogen storage disease IV (GSD IV). Each subtype has a different age of onset, severity and typical symptoms. Babies with GSD IV usually appear to have normal health at birth, although babies with the most severe form can show symptoms before birth. From the newborn period to the first few months of life, babies with GSD IV can have slow growth, poor weight gain, and larger than normal liver and spleen, or hepatosplonomegaly. Without a liver transplant, this often progresses to jaundice and liver failure.
