Article
Background Fabry disease (FD) is a rare lysosomal storage disorder that might result in, amongst other complications, early stroke and white matter lesions (WMLs). More insight in WMLs in FD could clarify the role of WMLs in the disease presentation and prognosis in FD. In this systematic review we assessed the prevalence, severity, location and co...
Article
Full-text available
Background Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) slows disease progression of Fabry disease (FD), especially when initiated before the onset of irreversible organ damage. However, with the clinically asymptomatic progression of renal, cardiac and cerebral disease manifestations spanning decades, optimal timing of ERT initiation remains unclear. Methods...
Article
Full-text available
Patients with Fabry disease (FD) have a high prevalence of depressive symptoms and can suffer from cognitive impairment, negatively affecting their life. The course of cognitive functioning and depressive symptoms in FD is unknown. The aim of this prospective cohort study was to describe changes in cognitive functioning and depressive symptoms and...
Article
Full-text available
Background and aim It is unclear which patients with Fabry disease (FD) are at risk for progression of white matter lesions (WMLs) and brain infarctions and whether enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) changes this risk. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of ERT and clinical characteristics on progression of WMLs and infarctions on MRI i...
Article
Full-text available
Background Despite the high prevalence of depressive symptoms in Fabry disease (FD), it is unclear which patient characteristics are important in relation to these symptoms. Additionally, the impact of coping styles in relation to depressive symptoms in FD has been unexplored. Determining the impact of different factors relating to depressive sympt...
Article
Full-text available
Fabry disease (FD) patients may suffer from objective cognitive impairment (OCI). This study assessed the accuracy of the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) to screen for OCI in FD patients. Presence or absence of OCI was established using a neuropsychological test battery. For different MMSE cutoffs sensitivity, specific-ity, positive predictive...
Article
Full-text available
A 54-year-old obese woman with a history of spina bifida was admitted to the hospital with malaise and fever accompanied by leucocytosis, thrombocytosis, and hypercalcaemia. As treatment for neurogenic bladder dysfunction she had a suprapubic catheter. Diagnostic workup for osteomyelitis revealed an unknown mass originating from the urinary bladder...
Article
Full-text available
This study investigates the relationship between objective cognitive impairment (OCI), subjective cognitive complaints and depressive symptoms in men and women with classical and non-classical Fabry disease (FD). Cognitive functioning was assessed using a neuropsychological test battery, subjective cognitive complaints using a structured interview...
Article
Full-text available
Fabry disease (FD) is a rare X-chromosome-linked lysosomal storage disorder. Although initial expectations of enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) were high, it is now clear that real-world effectiveness is disappointing and evidence gathering has been inadequate. In retrospect, development of ERT for FD had several shortcomings. Little convincing evid...
Article
Full-text available
Quality of life (QoL) is decreased in patients with Fabry disease (FD). To improve QoL, it is important to understand the influence of FD related characteristics, symptoms, and complications. In this retrospective cohort study we explored the effect of pain (measured by the Brief Pain Inventory), phenotype, treatment, and FD-related complications o...
