We report 2 patients with confirmed Niemann-Pick disease, type B, with previous diagnoses of glycogen storage disease based on excessive glycogen on liver biopsy specimens. These cases emphasize the importance of a complete evaluation, including biochemical confirmation, for patients with suspected metabolic storage diseases.
