We report a child with ALG-9 congenital disorder of glycosylation (ALG9-CDG) with two novel missense variants on clinical exome sequencing. Unlike the 11 previously reported patients, index child did not have dysmorphism. The case portrays the clinical heterogeneity of ALG-9 CDG.
J.N.G. contributed to case management, literature review, and preparation of the initial draft of the manuscript.
S.R. was the clinician-in-charge who critically reviewed the manuscript for important intellectual content and approved the final version to be published.
