Original Investigations


A mild bleeding tendency with characteristics of the von Willebrand disease was documented in family members of a girl with glycogen storage disease type Ib (GSD) Ib). It was assumed that a defective glucose-6-phosphate dependent microsomal glycoprotein synthesis was involved in the bleeding disorder of the patient and the GSD Ib heterozygotes.

Key words
