Histoenzymological Study of One Case of Fabry Disease Before and After Transplantation
Fabry’s disease, a sex-linked inborn error characterized by the lysosomal alpha-galactosidase deficiency inducing a glycolipid storage presents a follow up closely related to renal function therefore, transplantation constitute the most valuable treatment when it is possible. It could be interesting to assess the degree of renal injury and to survey how the graft reacts with regard to the glycolipid storage. Histochemical study of kidney could bring up valuable data on these field.
