Abstract

Fabry disease (FD) is an X-linked lysosomal storage disorder due to a deficiency of the α-galactosidase A enzyme. Although women were historically considered only carriers, many studies have contradicted this fact. The main aim of this work was to set the first Spanish study out of the on-going registries on health status and management of women diagnosed with FD who were not receiving enzyme replacement therapy (ERT).
