NGLY1 deficiency: estimated incidence, clinical features, and genotypic spectrum from the NGLY1 Registry

NGLY1 Deficiency is an ultra-rare, multisystemic disease caused by biallelic pathogenic NGLY1 variants. The aims of this study were to (1) characterize the variants and clinical features of the largest cohort of NGLY1 Deficiency patients reported to date, and (2) estimate the incidence of this disorder. The Grace Science Foundation collected genotypic data from 74 NGLY1 Deficiency patients, of which 37 also provided phenotypic data. We analyzed NGLY1 variants and clinical features and estimated NGLY1 disease incidence in the United States (U.S.).
