NIH Rare Diseases:43 Polyglucosan body disease is a slowly progressive metabolic disorder. it is caused by excessive accumulation of polyglucosan bodies in tissues, including nerve, muscle, liver, kidney, and lung. the disease can cause neurogenic bladder, dementia, loss of feeling in the lower limbs, and upper and lower motor neuron dysfunction. a variety of different biochemical defects may cause polyglucosan body disease. glycogen branching enzyme (gbe) deficiency has been identified as the cause in some patients. treatment of people with polyglucosan body disease is generally supportive, addressing symptoms such as walking impairment, incontinence, and dementia. last updated: 12/2/2008

MalaCards: Adult Polyglucosan Body Disease, also known as polyglucosan body disease, adult form, is related to adenosine deaminase deficiency and t lymphocyte deficiency, and has symptoms including pollakiuria/polyuria/dysuria/anuria/acute urine retention/oliguria, impotence/painful erection/priapism/erection troubles and peripheral neuropathy. An important gene associated with Adult Polyglucosan Body Disease is GBE1 (glucan (1,4-alpha-), branching enzyme 1). Affiliated tissues include brain, spinal cord and kidney.

Genetics Home Reference:21 Adult polyglucosan body disease is a condition that affects the nervous system. People with this condition have problems walking due to reduced sensation in their legs (peripheral neuropathy) and progressive muscle weakness and stiffness (spasticity). Damage to the nerves that control bladder function, a condition called neurogenic bladder, causes affected individuals to have progressive difficulty controlling the flow of urine. About half of people with adult polyglucosan body disease experience a decline in intellectual function (dementia).
