We describe a case of congenital disorder of glycosylation with chronic diarrhea, progressive liver cirrhosis, and recurrent infections. Transferrin analysis showed only hyposialylation, but analysis of total serum N-glycans indicated loss of additional sugars, arguing that the latter generates a more informative picture to search for the primary defect.
