Abstract

McArdle disease (Glycogen storage disease type V, GSDV ) is an inherited disorder of glycogen metabolism affecting only skeletal muscles. A 56-year-old male patient with McArdle disease had the symptoms such as fatigue, muscle weakness since he was 8 years old in his history. A Pre-emptive kidney transplant from his wife was performed on the patient who has gone through rhabdomyolysis attacks during his life period. As far as known, this is the first case in the literature. We aim to share this process before and after the transplantation.
