  • Angiokeratomas of the vulva are relatively rare finding and a limited number of cases have been reported in the literature.
  • Clinically, angiokeratomas of the vulva are benign vascular lesions usually occurring in middle-aged or older women.
  • Histopathologic analysis of the lesion confirmed the diagnosis of angiokeratoma, and all lesions were electrocauterized under local anesthesia.
  • Therefore, dermatovenereologists should be aware of angiokeratomas and respective therapeutic options when examining a patient with pruritic, painful, or bleeding lesions in the genital region.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Dermoscopy of solitary angiokeratomas: a morphological study.
  • OBJECTIVES: To describe the dermoscopic structures and patterns associated with solitary angiokeratomas and to determine the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value, and reproducibility of these dermoscopic features.
  • PATIENTS: There were 256 patients total, and 32 specimens each of solitary angiokeratomas, melanocytic nevi, Spitz-Reed nevi, malignant melanomas, pigmented basal cell carcinomas, dermatofibromas, seborrheic keratoses, and other vascular lesions (19 angiomas, 7 pyogenic granulomas, 3 spider nevi, 2 lymphangiomas, and 1 venous lake) were consecutively collected from the laboratories of 8 hospitals.
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The frequency, sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value, intraobserver agreement, and interobserver agreement of the different dermoscopic features associated with solitary angiokeratomas were calculated, and the differences were evaluated using the chi(2) or Fisher exact test.
  • RESULTS: Six dermoscopic structures were evident in at least 50% of the solitary angiokeratomas: dark lacunae (94%), whitish veil (91%), erythema (69%), peripheral erythema (53%), red lacunae (53%), and hemorrhagic crusts (53%).
  • Conclusion Dermoscopy is helpful in improving the diagnostic accuracy of solitary angiokeratomas and allows the observer to differentiate them from other cutaneous tumors such as malignant melanomas and pigmented basal cell carcinomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A case of multiple angiomas without any angiokeratomas in a female heterozygote with Fabry disease.
  • Fabry disease is a rare, X-chromosome-linked lysosomal storage disease caused by a deficient alpha-galactosidase A enzyme.
  • The disease manifests primarily in affected hemizygous males and to some extent in heterozygous females ('carrier').
  • A 45-year-old female Fabry disease patient without angiokeratomas but with numerous angiomas is presented.
  • An intrafamilial follow-up search detected a reduced leukocyte alpha-galactosidase A activity in her father, who suffered exclusively from coronary heart disease.
  • Our case report underlines the possible wide range of clinical signs in Fabry disease patients, sometimes complicated by missing typical lesions (e.g. angiokeratomas).
  • In oligosymptomatic Fabry disease cases, genetic analysis is recommended.

  • Solitary angiokeratomas can be morphologically similar to plantar verrucae, presenting as hyperkeratotic pedunculated lesions.
  • We present a unique case study of a 40-year-old man with human immunodeficiency virus with a painful solitary angiokeratoma masquerading as plantar verrucae.
  • We propose that solitary angiokeratomas should be an important part of a podiatric physician's differential diagnosis in the lower extremity owing to the similarity of morphological features with plantar verrucae.

  • Fabry disease (FD) is an X-linked disorder of glycosphingolipid metabolism caused by the deficient activity of alpha-galactosidase A which results in the accumulation of neutral glycosphingolipids in various tissues leading particularly to vasculopathy, cardiomyopathy, neuropathy, and chronic kidney disease.
  • Although there are some signs and symptoms suggestive of FD including painful crisis, angiokeratomas, and corneal changes, the majority of FD complications are non-specific (left ventricular hypertrophy, conduction abnormalities, vascular spasms, proteinuria, renal insufficiency), which is why FD still remains largely underdiagnosed.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Clinical spectrum of Anderson Fabry disease in a Romanian family.
  • Anderson Fabry disease (alpha galactosidase A deficiency) is an X-linked recessive lysosomal storage disorder; alpha galactosidase A deficiency results in accumulation of neutral glycosphingolipids, especially globotriaosylceramide (Gb3), in various cell types promoting development of disease with renal, cardiovascular, and cerebrovascular involvement.
  • Clinical aspects which usually begin in childhood or adolescence include intermittent pain in the extremities (acroparesthesias), episodic "Fabry crisis" of acute pain lasting hours to days, characteristic skin lesions (angiokeratomas), hypohidrosis, heat and cold intolerance.
  • Classic phenotype conception of the disease has changed within the past decade, recognizing that disease is not limited to the classical full-blown manifestation in affected males, but may also occur in carrier females.
  • The expanding clinical spectrum of Anderson Fabry disease (AFD) is a real challenge to diagnosis, especially in some patients whose exclusive single organ manifestation belongs to the heart or kidney.
  • His 26 years-old sister has angiokeratomas as the only sign of disease (case B).
  • Case C: the uncle of these two cases (A, B) has a long history of disease including chronic renal failure, bilateral deafness, stroke, aseptic osteonecrosis.
  • The purpose of the presentation is to sharpen physicians' perception of this disease.
  • Early and accurate diagnosis is mandatory considering that this disorder is now, after introduction of the novel enzyme replacement therapy, a treatable disease.

  • Fabry's disease is a congenital disorder of glycosphingolipid metabolism with an X-linked recessive inheritance, presenting with typical symptoms of pain crises, acroparesthesias, cutaneous and mucosal angiokeratomas, hypohidrosis, heart and kidney lesions, and other symptoms, which are described below.
  • From 2001, this disease is one of inborn errors of metabolism in which enzyme replacement therapy is applied very effectively.
  • Two atypical forms of the disease were discovered, and the first surveys were done revealing that the incidence of Fabry's disease can be much more higher than it was considered before.
  • A clinical case of Fabry's disease is described, and actual issues of diagnostics and treatment of Fabry's disease are discussed.
  • In spite of very typical symptoms, delayed diagnosis was made: after the first investigation of alpha-galactosidase A activity in dry blood sample, diagnosis of Fabry's disease was rejected; only after lysosomal enzyme activity assay in heparinized blood leukocytes, this diagnosis was confirmed.

  • [Title] Fabry disease during childhood: clinical manifestations and treatment with agalsidase alfa.
  • Fabry disease is a rare X-linked disorder that leads to widespread and progressive disease manifestations, with patients at risk of premature mortality as a result of renal, cardiovascular or cerebrovascular complications.
  • In recent years there has been a growing awareness that the first signs and symptoms of Fabry disease may begin during childhood.
  • Studies show that clinical manifestations such as pain, hypohidrosis, gastrointestinal disturbances, angiokeratomas, cornea verticillata and acroparaesthesiae may be common in childhood and that such manifestations may become apparent during the first few years of life.
  • Interest is now focused on whether enzyme replacement therapy can slow or prevent the onset of these disease manifestations.
  • Preliminary data from two studies suggest that treatment with agalsidase alfa is well tolerated in children and that it may have beneficial clinical effects; however, further research is needed to determine whether enzyme replacement therapy can prevent the development of disease manifestations.
  • CONCLUSION: The manifestations of Fabry disease first become apparent during childhood.
  • It is well known that disease-associated manifestations are progressive; however, it has yet to be determined whether specific treatment with enzyme replacement therapy can prevent the development of the associated severe and life-threatening complications.

  • Fabry's disease is a rare X-linked lysosomal storage disorder of glycosphingolipid (GL) metabolism, caused by a deficiency of alpha-galactosidase A activity.
  • The progressive accumulation of GL in tissues results in the clinical manifestations of the disease, that are more evident in hemizygous males, and include angiokeratomas, acroparesthesia, cornea verticillata, cardiac and kidney involvement, cerebrovascular manifestations.
  • A family with Fabry's disease including 2 female patients and 3 male patients is reported.
  • Cornea verticillata was a constant finding in all patients.
  • This demonstrates the important role of the ophtalmological examination for the diagnosis of Fabry's disease since the eye findings are so characteristic of the disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Fabry disease: cardiac manifestations and therapeutic options.
  • Fabry disease is a rare inherited lysosomal storage disorder caused by the partial or complete deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme alpha galactosidase A (alpha-Gal A), resulting in excess cellular glycosphingolipid deposition.
  • Disease transmission is X-linked, therefore it predominantly affects males and females as asymptomatic carriers.
  • However, females may also develop symptomatic disease of varying severity.
  • Glycosphingolipid deposition in various tissues leads to episodic pain crises and acroparesthesias, gastrointestinal disturbances, angiokeratomas, corneal, and lenticular opacities, and eventually in the third to fifth decades of life, the kidney, heart and central nervous system are involved.
  • Cardiac involvement is usually part of the multisystem disorder and presents in the fourth decade with other organ manifestations; however, a variant of Fabry disease with predominant cardiac manifestations has also been recognized.
  • Advanced cardiac disease may require a permanent pacemaker and cardiac transplant.
  • Substrate inhibition with enzyme replacement therapy and gene therapy instituted early in the disease course might slow progression of the cardiac manifestations.

  • Fabry disease is an X- linked lysosomal disorder due to deficient activity of the enzyme alpha galactosidase A which leads to multisystemic storage of globotriaosylceramide with neurologic, gastrointestinal, cardiac, renal, skin and ophtalmological involvement.
  • Recent studies indicate that heterozygous females develop symptoms similar to the males, but comparative information regarding the relative frequency of clinical manifestations, age of onset and severity of the disorder between males and females with Fabry disease is not available in Argentina.
  • We identified 59 symptomatic adult patients with Fabry disease: 32 males (mean age 34.8 years) and 27 females (mean age 46.6 years).
  • We compared the frequency and severity of the clinical manifestations in females and males with this disease.
  • The most frequent manifestations were: acroparesthesias, angiokeratomas, hypohydrosis (all them were significantly more frequent in males than in females, as well as the severity of symptoms), and cornea verticillata.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Later-onset Fabry disease: an adult variant presenting with the cramp-fasciculation syndrome.
  • BACKGROUND: Classic Fabry disease, an X-linked recessive lysosomal storage disease due to the deficient activity of alpha-galactosidase A, typically presents in early childhood with acroparesthesias, angiokeratomas, hypohidrosis, and corneal dystrophy.
  • Later-onset variants with residual alpha-galactosidase A activity lack vascular endothelial involvement and classic symptoms, which lead to the development of cardiac and/or renal disease after the fourth decade of life.
  • RESULTS: Clinical evaluation suggested the diagnosis of Fabry disease, which was confirmed by reduced plasma and leukocyte alpha-galactosidase A activities (8.8% and 13.4% of normal, respectively) due to a missense A143T mutation.
  • CONCLUSION: The presentation of cramps and fasciculations without apparent small-fiber neuropathy expands the phenotype of later-onset Fabry disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Cardiopulmonary exercise testing in Fabry disease.
  • BACKGROUND: Fabry disease is a rare X-linked disorder that results from a deficiency in a lysosomal enzyme known as alpha-galactosidase A, with accumulation of globotriaosylceramide (Gl3).
  • Early manifestations include angiokeratomas, acroparesthesias, and hypohidrosis and may progress to renal failure, cardiac dysfunction, and stroke.
  • OBJECTIVE: Our study evaluates the cardiopulmonary characteristics in a cohort of Fabry disease patients at rest and during exercise.
  • METHODS: Thirty-nine patients with a diagnosis of Fabry disease underwent a health screening history and physical examination, an electrocardiogram, an echocardiogram, pulmonary function testing (spirometry), and a non-invasive cardiopulmonary exercise test.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our finding of a significant decrease in DBP in patients with Fabry disease may explain deficits in exercise tolerance.
  • It is notable that this abnormality is manifested in female patients, even though they are typically not as severely affected as males.

  • [Title] Chronic renal failure and proteinuria in adulthood: Fabry disease predominantly affecting the kidneys.
  • The prognosis of Fabry disease has changed since enzyme-replacement treatment was introduced.
  • We describe a family presenting with chronic renal failure and proteinuria in which classic skin and neurological features were absent and the diagnosis of Fabry disease was difficult and not established until a second family member developed renal abnormalities.
  • Because 1 brother, who died years ago at the age of 32 years of acute myeloid leukemia, also had chronic renal failure and proteinuria, the diagnosis of Fabry disease was entertained.
  • In the index patient, acroparesthesia, hypohidrosis, pain, angiokeratomas of the skin, and cornea verticillata suggesting Fabry disease were absent.
  • In the brother who died, Fabry disease, missed at autopsy because of cancer-related findings, could be confirmed after repeated review of histological slides.
  • We conclude that familial chronic renal failure combined with proteinuria is suggestive of Fabry disease, and such specific mutations as E66K predominantly may affect the kidneys.

  • [Title] The relationship of vascular glycolipid storage to clinical manifestations of Fabry disease: a cross-sectional study of a large cohort of clinically affected heterozygous women.
  • Fabry disease is a rare X-linked lysosomal storage disorder caused by deficient activity of alpha-galactosidase A (alpha-Gal A) resulting in the storage of glycosphingolipids, especially globotriaosylceramide (Gb3), in cells throughout the body, causing life-threatening renal, cardiac, and cerebrovascular complications in hemizygous males and some heterozygous females.
  • Disease manifestations in heterozygotes are being recognized increasingly, but quantitative prospective data on their extent and severity are limited.
  • Prospective clinical and laboratory assessments were performed in a 7-day study of 61 women with signs and symptoms of Fabry disease.
  • Angiokeratomas and corneal epitheliopathy were documented in 63% and 82% of the 57 patients, respectively.
  • Despite the virtual absence of storage material in plasma and skin vascular endothelial cells, this population of women with Fabry disease exhibited a wide spectrum of clinical abnormalities.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Fabry disease in hemodialysis patients in southern Brazil: prevalence study and clinical report.
  • BACKGROUND: Fabry disease (FD) is a lysosomal storage disorder caused by a deficiency of alpha-Galactosidase A (alpha-Gal A).
  • Fabry nephropathy typically progresses throughout the fifth decade to end-stage renal disease (ESRD), requiring hemodialysis and/or kidney transplantation.
  • Of these, only two had low alpha-Gal A activity and were diagnosed with Fabry disease (0.36%).
  • One of these, age 42, had left ventricular hypertrophy and renal manifestations of Fabry disease without the classic symptoms.
  • The other, age 46, had the classical manifestations of angiokeratomas, acroparesthesias, hypohidrosis, and ocular opacities.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although the prevalence of Fabry disease was very low in our study (0.36%), routine screening of male hemodialysis patients would enable earlier identification of many other affected relatives in their families who might benefit from specific clinical treatment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Narrative review: Fabry disease.
  • Fabry disease is an X-linked, hereditary, lysosomal storage disease caused by deficiency of the enzyme alpha-galactosidase A, which results in the accumulation of the neutral glycosphingolipid globotriaosylceramide (Gb3) in the walls of small blood vessels, nerves, dorsal root ganglia, renal glomerular and tubular epithelial cells, and cardiomyocytes.
  • It is a complex, multisystem disorder that is characterized clinically by chronic pain and acroparesthesia, gastrointestinal disturbances, characteristic skin lesions (angiokeratomata), progressive renal impairment, cardiomyopathy, and stroke.
  • The effects of ERT on other tissues are not as obvious, suggesting that treatment must be initiated early in the course of the disease to be optimally effective or that some complications of the disease are not responsive to enzymes delivered intravenously.

  • BACKGROUND: Angiokeratoma corporis diffusum is a clinical variant of angiokeratoma that is typically associated with an enzyme deficiency in the metabolism of glycoprotein, most notably Fabry disease, resulting in many other systemic manifestations.
  • OBSERVATIONS: We report a case of angiokeratoma corporis diffusum that did not have an identifiable enzyme deficiency.
  • CONCLUSION: Angiokeratoma corporis diffusum without recognizable enzyme deficiencies appears to be a distinct clinical entity with a benign course.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Fabry disease in light of recent review].
  • Fabry disease is a lysosomal storage disorder that is caused by mutations in the gene encoding a-galactosidase A on Xq22.1.
  • Typically hemizygous male patients exhibit classic phenotypes such as angiokeratoma, acroparesthesias, episodic pain "crises," hypohidrosis, and whorl-shaped corneal opacities from childhood.
  • However, during adulthood, they gradually develop kidney failure, heart disease, and strokes resulting in early death between 40 to 50 years of age.
  • Patients having the cardiac variant of Fabry's disease exhibit only left ventricular hypertrophy, while patients having the renal variant exhibit only kidney failure.
  • Individuals affected by these variants show higher residual enzyme activity of alpha-galactosidase A than individuals affected by the classic form of Fabry's disease due to missense mutations of the GLA gene.
  • The cerebrovascular involvement in Fabry disease is not rare in both adult hemizygotes and heterozygotes.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Fabry disease: demographic data since introduction of enzyme replacement therapy].
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Fabry's disease is a rare, X-chromosome linked recessive lysosomal storage disorder.
  • The disease not only markedly impairs the quality of life but also shortens life expectancy if untreated.
  • As it is a rare and not widely known disease with considerable variability of its symptoms it is often not or only belatedly diagnosed.
  • It was the aim of this study to analyse the demography and clinical expression of the disease.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Data were obtained from the Fabry Outcome Survey (FOS), a Europe-wide data bank for the documentation of the disease's clinical course, on 262 patients (130 males, 132 females; mean age 37.5 and 34 years, respectively on entry in the FOS) in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
  • RESULTS: Typical symptoms - acroparesthesias, joint pain, hypohidrosis, fever and angiokeratoma - have their onset in childhood (mean age nine years).
  • Main causes of morbidity and death in Fabry's disease are involvement of the kidneys or heart, the one or other occurring in 75% of patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: It is of great importance for the prognosis and quality that Fabry's disease is diagnosed as early as possible and treated adequately before the onset of organ damage.
  • If the listed symptoms by themselves remain unexplained, Fabry's disease should be considered in the differential diagnosis.
  • National and international observational studies, such as the FOS, significantly contribute to gaining important clinical data on this heterogeneous disease.

  • Fabry disease is an under-recognized X-linked recessive lysosomal storage disorder resulting from the deficient activity of the enzyme alpha-galactosidase A (alpha-Gal A).
  • The first case of Fabry disease in Slovenia was diagnosed in 1991.
  • The diagnosis of angiokeratoma corporis diffusa (Fabry disease) was made clinically and confirmed by demonstration of the deficient leukocyte alpha-Gal A activity.
  • The patient subsequently developed cerebrovascular symptoms, coronary disease, and renal failure, and died from a recurrent myocardial infarction.
  • This case illustrates the typical multi-manifestations of this inherited disease which now can be safely and effectively treated by enzyme replacement therapy.
  • Early diagnosis is important for the most effective treatment of this disease.

  • [Title] Enzyme replacement therapy in patients with Fabry's disease.
  • Fabry's disease, a disorder affecting the gene for the lysosomal enzyme alpha-galactosidase A (alpha-GAL A), can cause accumulation of globotriaosylceramide (GL-3) in the vascular endothelial cells.
  • Symptoms include pain, angiokeratoma, corneal clouding, and damage to the heart and kidneys.
  • Eleven ambulatory patients with Fabry's disease were given replacement alpha-GAL A therapy.
  • Three patients died due to factors associated with Fabry's disease.
  • Although careful observation is necessary, these results suggest that replacement alpha-GAL A therapy may be a safe and effective treatment of Fabry's disease.

  • We analyzed the clinical and histopathologic characteristics of verrucous hemangioma, compared these findings to hyperkeratotic mimickers such as capillary-lymphatic malformation or capillary-venous malformation and angiokeratoma circumscriptum, and reconsidered whether the term verrucous hemangioma is appropriate in the current nosology of vascular anomalies.
  • Fourteen similar-appearing localized hyperkeratotic vascular lesions were identified by one surgeon as either angiokeratoma, angiokeratoma circumscriptum, capillary-venous malformation, capillary-lymphatic malformation, or verrucous hemangioma.
  • After histologic review, three lesions were designated as combined vascular malformations composed of capillaries, lymphatics, and veins, and none was designated as angiokeratoma.

  • [Title] Clinical manifestations of Fabry disease in children: data from the Fabry Outcome Survey.
  • BACKGROUND: Fabry disease is a rare X-linked disorder caused by deficient activity of the enzyme alpha-galactosidase A.
  • AIM: Here, we present the clinical manifestations of Fabry disease in children enrolled in FOS--the Fabry Outcome Survey--a European database of the natural history of Fabry disease and the effects of enzyme replacement therapy with agalsidase alfa (Replagal).
  • RESULTS: The most frequent early clinical manifestations of Fabry disease were neurological (acroparaesthesiae, altered temperature sensitivity) and gastrointestinal symptoms (altered bowel habits and abdominal pain), which were documented in about 80% and 60% of patients, respectively, at the time of evaluation and subsequent entry into FOS.
  • Tinnitus, vertigo, fatigue and angiokeratoma were present in over 40% of patients.
  • CONCLUSION: Although the life-threatening complications of Fabry disease, such as stroke and renal and heart failure, are not seen in children, the present analysis shows that other symptoms are common and may have an impact on quality of life.

  • [Title] Fabry disease: treatment and diagnosis.
  • Fabry disease is an X-linked lysosomal disorder that results from a deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme alpha-galactosidase A leading to accumulation of glycolipids, mainly globotriaosylceramide in the cells from different tissues.
  • Classical Fabry disease affects various organs.
  • Clinical manifestations start at early age and include angiokeratoma, acroparesthesia, hypohydrosis, heat/exercise intolerance, gastrointestinal pain, diarrhea, and fever.
  • The main complications of Fabry disease are more prominent after the age of 30 when kidney, heart, and/or cerebrovascular disorders appear.
  • Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) is the only specific treatment for Fabry disease.
  • Fabry disease may be underdiagnosed because of nonspecific and multiorgan symptoms.
  • An increasing knowledge about Fabry disease within the medical community increases the chances of patients to receive a timely diagnosis and, consequently, to access the appropriate therapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Clinical manifestations and natural history of Japanese heterozygous females with Fabry disease.
  • Fabry disease is an X linked lysosomal storage disorder resulting from deficiency of α-galactosidase A activity.
  • Although disease manifestations in heterozygous females with Fabry disease have been considered to be rare and mild, heterozygous patients with severe symptoms have recently been reported.
  • In this study we focused on the clinical characteristics of Japanese females patients with Fabry disease and analysed data from 36 women.
  • Data on clinical manifestations such as acroparaesthesia, hypohidrosis, angiokeratoma, corneal opacities, proteinuria, end-stage renal disease (ESRD), left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and cerebral infarction were obtained by questionnaire; these analysed by the Kaplan-Meier method and compared with the data from Japanese male patients.
  • Eighty-six per cent of female patients had at least one clinical sign of Fabry disease.
  • The cumulative incidences of angiokeratoma, corneal opacities, proteinuria, ESRD, LVH and cerebral infarction were significantly lower in female than in male patients.
  • We consider that the term X-linked 'recessive' is inappropriate for Fabry disease because of the high prevalence of its pathognomonic signs in heterozygous female patients.
  • Careful and long-term evaluation of clinical signs is important in heterozygous females patients with Fabry disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Fabry disease and the skin: data from FOS, the Fabry outcome survey.
  • BACKGROUND: Fabry disease (also known as Anderson-Fabry disease) is a rare, X-linked lysosomal storage disorder that is characterized by accumulation of globotriaosylceramide throughout a range of tissues in the body.
  • OBJECTIVES: To ascertain the prevalence and nature of cutaneous manifestations in patients with Fabry disease and to relate these to the severity of systemic manifestations of the disease.
  • METHODS: We have documented the dermatological features of this disease with reference to data from 714 patients (345 males, 369 females) registered on the Fabry Outcome Survey (FOS), a multicentre European database.
  • RESULTS: We confirm that the commonest disease manifestation is angiokeratoma.
  • Overall, 78% of males and 50% of females had one or more dermatological abnormality, the commonest being angiokeratoma (66% males, 36% females), hypohidrosis (53% males, 28% females), telangiectasia (23% males, 9% females) and lymphoedema (16% males, 6% females).
  • We demonstrate for the first time that the presence of cutaneous vascular lesions correlates with the severity of the systemic manifestations of the disease (pain, renal failure, cardiac disease, premature cerebrovascular disease) as assessed by a severity scoring system.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The FOS database is a useful epidemiological tool in establishing the variety and relevance of cutaneous manifestations in Fabry disease.
  • The present study confirms that the presence of dermatological manifestations appears to be a marker of greater severity of systemic disease, which emphasizes the importance of the dermatological assessment of these patients.
