ALG8-CDG


Alternate names

ALG8-CDG Is also known as cdg-ih, congenital disorder of glycosylation type 1h, cdgih, carbohydrate deficient glycoprotein syndrome type ih, cdg1h, cdg syndrome type ih, cdg ih, glucosyltransferase 2 deficiency, congenital disorder of glycosylation type ih

Description

ALG8-CDG is a form of congenital disorders of N-linked glycosylation that is characterized by gastrointestinal symptoms (diarrhea, vomiting, feeding problems with failure to thrive, protein-losing enteropathy), edema and ascites (including hydrops fetalis; see this term), hepatomegaly, renal tubulopathy, coagulation anomalies due to thrombocytopenia, brain involvement (psychomotor delay, seizures, ataxia), facial dysmorphism (low-set ears and retrognathia), pes equinovarus, and muscular hypotonia. Cataracts may also be observed. Prognosis is usually poor. The disease is caused by loss-of-function mutations in the gene ALG8 (11q14.1), resulting in a block in the initial step of protein glycosylation.

Most common symptoms of ALG8-CDG

  • Generalized hypotonia
  • Growth delay
  • Hypertelorism
  • Failure to thrive
  • Abnormal facial shape

POLYCYSTIC LIVER DISEASE 3 WITH OR WITHOUT KIDNEY CYSTS; PCLD3


Description

PCLD3 is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by the development of multiple liver cysts that usually becomes apparent in adulthood. Liver cysts range in size and number, and the clinical severity is variable. Most patients also have a few renal cysts, but they do not result in significant renal disease or renal failure (summary by Besse et al., 2017).For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of polycystic liver disease, see PCLD1 (OMIM ).

Most common symptoms of POLYCYSTIC LIVER DISEASE 3 WITH OR WITHOUT KIDNEY CYSTS; PCLD3

  • Renal insufficiency
  • Abnormality of the liver
  • Renal cyst
  • Hepatic cysts
  • Polycystic liver disease
