Cori's disease

Introduction: Cori's disease

Description of Cori's disease

Cori's disease: A rare disease where a missing enzyme causes abnormal amounts of glycogen to be deposited in the liver, skeletal muscles and heart. This can stunt growth and lead to an enlarged liver, hypoglycemia and acidosis.

Cori's disease: An autosomal recessive metabolic disorder due to deficient expression of amylo-1,6-glucosidase (one part of the glycogen debranching enzyme system). The clinical course of the disease is similar to that of glycogen storage disease type I, but milder. Massive hepatomegaly, which is present in young children, diminishes and occasionally disappears with age. Levels of glycogen with short outer branches are elevated in muscle, liver, and erythrocytes. Six subgroups have been identified, with subgroups Type IIIa and Type IIIb being the most prevalent.
