Liver transplantation recovers hepatic N-glycosylation with persistent IgG glycosylation abnormalities: Three-year follow-up in a patient with phosphomannomutase-2-congenital disorder of glycosylation

Phosphomannomutase-2-congenital disorder of glycosylation (PMM2-CDG) is the most common CDG and presents with highly variable features ranging from isolated neurologic involvement to severe multi-organ dysfunction. Liver abnormalities occur in in almost all patients and frequently include hepatomegaly and elevated aminotransferases, although only a minority of patients develop progressive hepatic fibrosis and liver failure. No curative therapies are currently available for PMM2-CDG, although investigation into several novel therapies is ongoing. We report the first successful liver transplantation in a 4-year-old patient with PMM2-CDG.
