Pompe disease, or glycogen storage disease II is a rare, progressive disease leading to skeletal muscle weakness due to deficiency of the acid α-1,4-glucosidase enzyme (GAA). The severity of disease and observed time of onset is subject to the various combinations of heterozygous GAA alleles. Here we have characterized two novel mutations: c.2074C>T and c.1910_1918del, and a previously reported c.1082C>G mutation of uncertain clinical significance. These mutations were found in three unrelated patients with adult-onset Pompe disease carrying the common c.-32-13T>G mutation. The c.2074 C>T nonsense mutation has obvious consequences on GAA expression but the c.1910_1918del (deletion of 3 amino acids) and c.1082C>G missense variants are more subtle DNA changes with catastrophic consequences on GAA activity. Molecular and clinical analyses from the three patients corresponded with the anticipated pathogenicity of each mutation.
