Lysosomal storage diseases (LSDs) are a group of progressive, autosomal recessive, and hereditary disorders characterized by the accumulation of specific substrates and variable age of onset and clinical symptoms. Pompe disease, a type of LSD, is caused by mutations in the GAA gene. These mutations inhibit the mechanism of action (MOA) of GAA; it is an enzyme responsible for catabolizing glycogen, resulting in accumulation of glycogen to toxic levels in the lysosomes of the cells. The buildup of glycogen in certain tissues and organs, especially in the muscles, hinders the normal functions of the organs. It can be further divided as adult-onset and infantile-onset Pompe diseases. As the disease is an autosomal recessive hereditary disorder, both parents are carriers and pass one copy of the mutated gene to their offspring. It affects both women and men across all ethnicities and races and has a varied age of onset of symptoms. Till date, researchers have identified over 300 genetic mutation types that lead to disease manifestation. Though there is no known cure for Pompe disease, enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) and diet therapy have been effective in reducing its clinical manifestations.
