PMID:  3508064     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 7-year-old boy with glycogen storage disease type III developed transient acute cortical blindness associated with hypoglycemia on two separate occasions; the patient also demonstrated transient high-voltage slowing on the electroencephalogram over both occipital areas. This patient is the second examined in our pediatric department during a 5 year period with acute cortical blindness associated with hypoglycemia.
