Forbes disease (GSD-III) is one of several glycogen storage disorders (GSD) that are inherited as autosomal recessive traits; Symptoms are caused by a lack of the enzyme amylo-1,6 glucosidase (debrancher enzyme); This enzyme deficiency causes excess amounts of an abnormal glycogen to be deposited in the liver, muscles and, in some cases, the heart; There are two forms of this disorder. GSD-IIIA affects about 85% of patients with Forbes disease and involves both the liver and the muscles; GSD-IIIB affects only the liver;[NORD 2005]------------------------------------------------------
