This study reports on a Mexican mestizo patient with a multi-systemic syndrome including neurological involvement and a type I serum transferrin profile. Clinical exome sequencing revealed complex alleles in ALG1 , the encoding gene for the chitobiosyldiphosphodolichol beta-mannosyltransferase that participates in the formation of the dolichol-pyrophosphate-GlcNAc2Man5, a lipid-linked glycan intermediate during N -glycan synthesis. The identified complex alleles were NM_019109.5(ALG1): c.[208 + 16_208 + 19dup; 208 + 25G > T] and NM_019109.5(ALG1): c.[208 + 16_208 + 19dup; 1312C > T]. Although both alleles carried the benign variant c.208 + 16_208 + 19dup, one allele carried a known ALG1 pathogenic variant (c.1312C > T), while the other carried a new uncharacterized variant (c.208 + 25G > T) causing non-functional alternative splicing that, in conjunction with the benign variant, defines the pathogenic protein effect (p.N70S_S71ins9). The presence in the patient’s serum of the pathognomonic N-linked mannose-deprived tetrasaccharide marker for ALG1-CDG (Neu5Acα2,6Galβ1,4-GlcNAcβ1,4GlcNAc) further supported this diagnosis. This is the first report of an ALG1-CDG patient from Latin America.
