CONCLUSIONS: 1. Rapid cessation of ERT results not only in the loss of the beneficial effects, but in a significant worsening of the patient's clinical status. 2. Decisions about the introduction of ERT, especially in patients severely affected, should be made carefully. 3. Once started, it is essential to keep an adequate administration schedule of ERT to maintain the clinical benefits of enzyme therapy.
