Glycogen storage disease (GSD) type Ib is a congenital disorder of glycogen metabolism that is associated with neutropenia, neutrophil dysfunction, and an inflammatory bowel disease that mimics a Crohn phenotype. Gastrointestinal inflammation in GSD Ib has been successfully treated with 5-aminosalicylic acid and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF). However, therapeutic options for patients not responding to traditional therapies have been limited owing to untoward effects of glucocorticoids and immunomodulators in this metabolic disorder. Adalimumab is a monoclonal antibody targeting tumour necrosis factor-α that has shown promise for the treatment of patients with Crohn disease. Due to the limited options for treating GSD-associated inflammatory bowel disease, use of adalimumab was attempted in a case unresponsive to aminosalicylate, G-CSF, and antibiotic therapy. Significant clinical and histological improvement was observed in our patient, and the medication was well tolerated.
