    Fabry disease, also known as Anderson-Fabry disease, angiokeratoma corporis diffusum and alpha-galactosidase A deficiency, is a rare genetic lysosomal storage disorder. Some cases show no significant clinical manifestations. In other cases, the clinical manifestations of Fabrys disease appear early in life. With age,…[1]

    Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is essentially an increase in myocardial mass. The most common cause is hypertension. Current evidence indicates that if untreated, LVH has high morbidity and mortality from heart disease and stroke. Most patients with mild or moderate LVH have no symptoms. However, if the LVH is…[2]

    Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a genetic disorder characterized by left ventricular hypertrophy without an identifiable cause. Most patients have little or no disability and a normal life expectancy. Higher rates of morbidity or mortality are linked to the complications of the disorder, sudden cardiac death,…[9]
