Description from OMIM

Glycogen storage disease type I, also known as von Gierke disease, typically manifests during the first year of life with severe hypoglycemia and hepatomegaly caused by the accumulation of glycogen. Affected individuals exhibit growth retardation, delayed puberty, lactic acidemia, hyperlipidemia, hyperuricemia, and in adults a high incidence of hepatic adenomas (summary by Lei et al., 1993).
