Last Updated: 03 May 2022

ALG1-congenital disorder of glycosylation is an acquired disorder with differing signs and symptoms that usually develop throughout infancy and can influence a number of body systems. People with ALG1-CDG commonly have intellectual special needs, delayed advancement, and weak muscular tissue tone. Individuals with ALG1-CDG might have movement problems such as involuntary balanced shaking or difficulties with movement and equilibrium. People with ALG1-CDG commonly have problems with blood clot, which can lead to abnormal clotting or hemorrhaging episodes. Some people with ALG1-CDG have physical problems such as a small head size; unusual facial features; joint deformities called contractures; long, slim fingers and toes; or unusually fleshy pads at the pointers of the fingers and toes. Eye troubles that may occur in people with this condition include eyes that do not aim parallel or involuntary eye movements. Less common irregularities that occur in people with ALG1-CDG include respiratory troubles, lowered sensation in their limbs, swelling, and gastrointestinal difficulties.
