Congenital disorder of glycosylation 2K
An autosomal recessive disorder with a variable phenotype. Affected individuals show psychomotor retardation and growth retardation, and most have short stature. Other features include dysmorphism, hypotonia, eye abnormalities, acquired microcephaly, hepatomegaly, and skeletal dysplasia. Congenital disorders of glycosylation are caused by a defect in glycoprotein biosynthesis and characterized by under-glycosylated serum glycoproteins and a wide variety of clinical features. The broad spectrum of features reflects the critical role of N-glycoproteins during embryonic development, differentiation, and maintenance of cell functions.
