Congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDG) are metabolic disorders that affect the glycosylation of proteins and lipids. Since glycosylation affects all organs, CDG show a wide spectrum of phenotypes. We present a patient with microcephaly, dysmorphic facies, congenital heart defect, focal epilepsy, infantile spasms, skeletal dysplasia, and a type 1 serum transferrin isoelectrofocusing due to a novel CDG caused by a homozygous variant in the oligosaccharyltransferase complex noncatalytic subunit (OSTC) gene involved in glycosylation and confirmed by serum transferrin electrophoresis.
