• Fabry Disease From a Patient’s Perspective, Featuring Maya Kineen

    8 JUN. 2024 · In this episode of our series focused on Fabry disease, we feature Maya Kineen, a patient and advocate with this rare disorder. Fabry disease is an inherited disorder that results from the buildup of a particular type of fat, called globotriaosylceramide, in the body's cells. Beginning in childhood, this buildup causes signs and symptoms that affect many parts of the body. Characteristic features of Fabry disease include episodes of pain, particularly in the hands and feet (acroparesthesias); clusters of small, dark red spots on the skin called angiokeratomas; a decreased ability to sweat (hypohidrosis); cloudiness of the front part of the eye (corneal opacity); problems with the gastrointestinal system; ringing in the ears (tinnitus); and hearing loss. Fabry disease also involves potentially life-threatening complications such as progressive kidney damage, heart attack, and stroke. Some affected individuals have milder forms of the disorder that appear later in life and affect only the heart or kidneys.

  • Signs and Symptoms of Fabry Disease, Featuring Nicola Longo, MD

    8 JUN. 2024 · This is the second of a three-part series focusing on Fabry disease. In this episode, we talk with Nicola Longo, MD, Chief of the Division of Medical Genetics at the University of Utah, Spencer Fox Eccles School of Medicine in Salt Lake City. Dr. Longo discusses Fabry disease, including the progression of the disease and personalized medicine. Fabry disease is an inherited disorder that results from the buildup of globotriaosylceramide or GL-3. The disorder affects many parts of the body. Signs and symptoms may include acroparesthesias, angiokeratomas, hypohidrosis, corneal opacity, and hearing loss. Potentially severe complications can include progressive kidney damage, heart attack, and stroke. Fabry disease is caused by mutations in the GLA gene and is inherited in an X-linked manner. Treatment may include enzyme replacement therapy (ERT); pain medications, ACE inhibitors; and chronic hemodialysis or renal transplantation for end stage renal disease.

  • Fabry Disease Overview, Featuring William Burns, MD

    8 JUN. 2024 · In this first part of our four-part series on Fabry disease, we feature William Burns, MD, a biochemical geneticist at Greenwood Genetic Center in Greenwood, South Carolina. Dr. Burns summarizes this rare disease, including current management strategies. Fabry disease is a lysosomal storage disorder, meaning that a glycosphingolipid called GL-3 accumulates in the lysosomes, causing tissue damage; many cell types are affected. The disease is caused by mutations in the GLA gene, resulting in nonfunctional or dysfunctional alpha-galactosidase A, a lysosomal enzyme. The mutations can be inherited, so multiple family members can have the disease. Fabry disease is a multisystemic disease, affecting many organs, including the heart, kidney and nervous system, resulting in life-threatening complications and a reduced life expectancy. Early signs of the disease start in childhood and adolescence, but it is a progressive, lifelong condition. Newborn screening has now been performed in several countries, yielding a prevalence ranging from 1 in 1,368 to 1 in 8,882 births.

  • Alpha-Mannosidosis From a Mom’s Perspective, Featuring Rhonda Skipper

    20 DIC. 2023 · In this final episode of our four-part series focused on alpha-mannosidosis, we feature Rhonda Skipper, a mom of two boys, Dale and Matt, who have this rare disease. Alpha-mannosidosis is a rare genetic disorder characterized by a deficiency of the enzyme alpha-D-mannosidase. Alpha-mannosidosis is best thought of as a continuum of disease that is generally broken down into three forms: a mild, slowly progressive form (type 1); a moderate form (type 2); and a severe, often rapidly progressive and potentially life-threatening form (type 3). The symptoms and severity of the disorder are highly variable. Signs may include distinctive facial features, skeletal abnormalities, hearing loss, intellectual disability, and dysfunction of the immune system. Alpha-mannosidosis is caused by mutations of the MAN2B1 gene. This genetic mutation is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait.
