9 It is a rare X-linked recessive disorder, with an incidence of about 1:40 000,10 caused by the mutation in a-galactosidase, a gene on long arm of X chromosome11 and subsequent deficiency of lysosomal hydrolase, alpha-galactosidase, which results in the progressive deposition of uncleaved neutral glycosphingolipids, predominantly a-galactosyl-lactosyl ceramide (trihexosyl ceramide) within the lysosomes of endothelial, perithelial, smooth muscle cells, autonomic nervous system, kidneys, eyes and heart.
