The UCSF Lysosomal Storage Disease Center provides comprehensive care to patients with lysosomal storage disorders and their families. Our services include consultation, examination, testing, diagnosis, treatment and genetic counseling.
These inherited diseases are caused by problems with lysosomes, components of cells that contain enzymes (chemicals that break down various substances). When a particular enzyme is missing or inadequately supplied, these substances can build up to abnormal levels and cause symptoms.
There are many different lysosomal storage diseases. Treatment is currently available for Gaucher disease, Fabry disease and Hurler syndrome. Because these diseases affect many different systems in the body, our team includes specialists in a variety of disciplines, and we work closely with other UCSF experts as needed.
