lipid storage diseases

A group of rare conditions–eg, Fabry's disease, Niemann-Pick disease, and sea-blue histiocytosis syndrome, which are often fatal in early childhood, usually due to a catabolic defect of lipid metabolism and characterized by the accumulation of lipids in one or more organs. See Pseudo-Gaucher's disease, Sphingolipidosis.
