Von Gierke disease is also known as Type I Glycogen Storage Disease (GSD I)[1]. It is caused by a glucose-6-phosphatase deficiency, and so leads to the body being unable to break down glycogen into glucose during glycogenolysis in the liver. This leads to hypoglycaemia and hepatomegaly. Von Gierke disease is inherited.
