Pompe disease is a rare, inheritable, progressive metabolic myopathy. This study aimed to estimate the minimal clinically important difference (MCID) for an improvement in forced vital capacity in the upright seated position (FVC ) and the 6-min walk test (6MWT) after a year of treatment with enzyme replacement therapy.
