Informations about the disease

Clinical Comment

Fabry disease is a progressive, multisystemic lysosomal storage disorder characterised by neurological, cutaneous, cardiovascular, cochleo-vestibular and cerebrovascular symptoms. The clinical picture covers a wide spectrum, ranging from mild cases in heterozygous women to severe courses in classically affected hemicygous men with no residual activity of alpha-galactosidase A. These patients may have all the characteristic neurological (pain), cutaneous (angiokeratoma), renal (proteinuria, renal insufficiency), cardiovascular (cardiomyopathy, arrhythmia), cochleo-vestibular and cerebrovascular (transient ischaemic attacks, stroke) symptoms of the disease. Female patients can have very mild to severe symptoms. Fabry disease is caused by mutations in the GLA gene. A negative genetic finding practically rules out Fabry's disease.
