Information on the hypothalamic pituitary ovarian axis in congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDG) females is scarce. Varying hormonal profiles and degrees of virilization in CDG females suggest a spectrum of yet unidentified mechanisms affected by impaired N-glycosylation. We describe an ALG6D woman who completed puberty with normal gonadotropins and testosterone levels, no virilization, and regular menses. Hormonal follow-up of CDG females is necessary to improve our understanding of the role of glycosylation in pubertal development.
