Cross-species summary: Also called Pompe disease, Pompe's disease, acid maltase deficiency, and generalised glycogenesis type II. A lysosomal storage disease in which there is a buildup (storage) of glycogen, due to the lack of the enzyme alpha-glucosidase, whose task is to break down glycogen into its constituent glucose molecules. Characterised by poor growth, incoordination, muscle weakness and eventual recumbency.
