Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cardiovascular complications due to the accumulation of globotriaosylceramide in cardiac cells occur in almost all patients affected by Anderson-Fabry disease. Cardiac manifestations include left ventricular hypertrophy, mitral regurgitation, conduction disturbances and myocardial ischaemia. We report a case of Fabry's disease diagnosed several years after the onset of early cardiac symptoms.
