Fabry disease is an inheritable lysosomal storage disease characterized by the excessive accumulation of globotriaosylceramide (GL-3) in lysosomes. It results from a deficiency of a-Gal and can result in symptoms such as fatigue, angiokeratoma, tinnitus, kidney failure, heart disorders, and nervous system problems. Fabry disease results from mutations in the galactosidase (GLA) gene, resulting in decreased activity or complete absence of a-Gal.

Fabry disease resulting from the decreased activity of the enzyme is called later-onset Fabry disease. This form of the disease can effect both males and females. The symptoms of this disease typically appear during adulthood and usually focus on a single organ.
