Aim

Congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDG) are a group of rare metabolic diseases, characterized by impaired glycosylation. Multisystemic involvement is common and neurological impairment is notably severe and disabling, concerning the central and peripheral nervous system. Epilepsy is frequent, but detailed electroclinical description is rare.
