Cardiac glycogenosis. A rare disease (about 30 observations), it is always fatal: death occurs as a result of heart failure. Most children suffering from this disease die within the first year of age, some die between 2 and 4 years. We must, however, quote two exceptional cases in which death occurred respectively at 11 and 15 years of age.
