Three differing cases of glycogen storage disease are described. Each arose from a consanguineous marriage. One was a case of the classical von Gierke's disease, but the other two were less severe cases. The galactose tolerance test was used to investigate certain aspects of carbohydrate metabolism in the patients and the results are discussed in the light of recent biochemical knowledge of carbohydrate metabolism.
