The glycogen storage diseases contain a range of diseases that are characterized by the abnormal storage or utilization of glycogen, the organs most affected being muscle and / or liver. Hepatomegaly may be a clinical sign that could guide to the diagnosis. We describe a 15-year-old patient with hepatomegaly, hypertransaminasemia and growth retardation. He was diagnosed with a glycogen storage disease by liver biopsy.

Keywords : Glycogenosis; Glycogen storage disease; Liver.
