abstract

  • Pathogenic variants in the PGAM2 gene are associated with glycogen storage disease type X (GSDX) and is characterized by exercise induced muscle cramping, weakness, myoglobinuria, and often tubular aggregates in skeletal muscle. We report here a patient diagnosed with GSDX at 52 years of age with a normal increase in post-exercise lactate with both anaerobic and aerobic exercise. Genetic testing found two novel PGAM2 variants (c.426C > A, p.Tyr142Ter and c.533delG, p.Gly178Alafs*31).
