Hyperglycerolemia

Common Name(s)

Hyperglycerolemia, Deficiency of glycerol kinase

{3:Francke et al. (1987)} noted that there are 3 clinically distinct forms of glycerol kinase deficiency: infantile, juvenile, and adult. The infantile form is associated with severe developmental delay, and those with the adult form have no symptoms and are often detected fortuitously. The infantile form of GK deficiency, or the 'GK complex,' results from the Xp21 contiguous gene deletion syndrome ({300679}) with congenital adrenal hypoplasia ({300200}) and/or Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD; {310200}), whereas the juvenile and adult forms have isolated GK deficiency ({17:Walker et al., 1996}).
