lipidosis

 [lip″ĭ-do´sis] (pl. lipido´ses)
any disorder of lipid metabolism involving abnormal accumulation of lipids, including hand-schüller-christian disease, niemann-pick disease, tay-sachs disease, gaucher's disease, and other conditions.

, pl.

lip·i·do·ses

(lip'i-dō'sis, -sēz),
Hereditary abnormality of lipid metabolism that results in abnormal amounts of lipid deposition; classification is typically based on the responsible enzymatic deficiency and type of lipid involved. Such enzymatic activity takes place in the lysosomes, and the abnormal products appear as lysosomal storage diseases. Sphingolipidoses make up the largest portion of recognized lipidoses, including abnormal metabolism of gangliosides, ceramides, and cerebrosides.

/lip·i·do·sis/ (lip″ĭ-do´sis) pl. lipido´ses   any disorder of lipid metabolism involving abnormal accumulation of lipids in the reticuloendothelial cells.

lipidosis

[lip′idō′sis]
Etymology: Gk, lipos + osis, condition
a general term that includes several rare familial disorders of fat metabolism. The chief characteristic of these disorders is the accumulation of abnormal levels of certain lipids in the body. Kinds of lipidoses are Gaucher's disease, Krabbe's disease, Niemann-Pick disease, and Tay-Sachs disease.

Any disorder of fat metabolism featuring a generalized deposition of lipids in RETICULOENDOTHELIAL SYSTEM cells. Also known as lipid storage disease. See also GAUCHER'S DISEASE and NIEMANN-PICK DISEASE.
