Show us your inner artist | CDG Art Project

There is an artist inside everyone of us. We would like to know our CDG Community artists.


Christmas is just around the corner and what better way to share and spread the holiday jolly than sending postcards to your friends and loved ones.


This year, for the CDG & Allies-PPAIN and the APCDG Christmas campaign we would like to count with our CDG Community artists and turn their wonderful drawings into postcards.



Will you join us in this project?

It will be SUPER fun!


1 – Ask your child/children to do a drawing,

2 – Scan it and send it to sindromecdg@gmail.com

3 – We will turn the drawings into postcards


These postcards will be sold as part of a fundraising campaign for research in CDG.

We look forward to meet our CDG Community artists!

Clinical management guidelines for CDG

Research papers featuring clinical management guidelines for PMM2-CDG, MPI-CDG and PGM1-CDG

Clinical management guidelines for CDG

The majority of CDG don’t have a specific treatment, hence the management of the clinical symptoms and presentations is fundamental for patients and families well being and quality of life.

In an unprecedented effort, researchers, medical professionals and patient advocates of the CDG & Allies-PPAIN network and the APCDG, teamed up to combine their knowledge and to gather the existing scattered information across the literature.

This originated 3 research papers with management guidelines for the clinical symptoms and presentations for 3 CDG types:

1- PMM2-CDG,


3 – PGM1-CDG

These papers are of vital importance since they are tools to educate medical doctors about the symptoms presented by these patients and more importantly, the existing management solutions, which is vital for a swift treatment response.

These literature reviews are part of the CDG & Allies-PPAIN network strategy to raise awareness for CDG and to push for research and therapy development.

If you are interested in getting these papers just write to sindromecdg@gmail.com
