OBJECTIVE. Our objective was to describe the various imaging patterns of Fabry disease, including cerebrovascular, renal, cardiac, and other organ involvement. Fabry disease, an X-linked inborn error of glycosphingolipid catabolism resulting from a deficient activity of the hydrolase α-galactosidase A, displays more complications in men than in heterozygous women. CONCLUSION. It is up to radiologists to evoke the diagnosis, help practitioners in treating patients early with enzyme replacement therapy, and monitor its efficacy.
