McArdle's disease (glycogenosis type V) is a metabolic disorder of hydrocarbons, inherited with autosomic recessive pattern.

Biochemically is defined by a myophosphorylase deficiency; clinically it is characterized by exercise intolerance, due to the impossibility of providing energetic substrate to the muscle, myalgias and stiffness.

We present a case report of a patient with McArdle's disease and we comment the diagnostic procedures and current therapeutic options.
