2011 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 272.7
- x-linked lysosomal storage disease of glycosphingolipid catabolism, resulting from a deficiency of alpha-galactosidase A and leading to accumulation of ceramide trihexoside in the cardiovascular and renal systems.
- autosomal recessive disorder caused by deficiency of the enzyme glucocerebrosidase featuring the pathological storage of glycosylceramide in mononuclear phagocytes; the most common subtype is the non-neuronopathic form, a slowly progressive condition characterized by hepatosplenomegaly and skeletal deformities; the neuronopathic forms are divided into infantile and juvenile forms; the infantile form presents at 4-5 months of age with anemia, loss of cognitive gains, neck retraction, dysphagia, and hepatosplenomegaly; the juvenile form features a slowly progressive loss of intellect, hepatosplenomegaly, ataxia, myoclonic seizures, and spasticity; the neuronopathic forms are characterized by neuronal loss with neuronophagia, and accumulation of glucocerebroside in neurons.
- rapidly progressing disease of young children, characterized histologically by abnormal fibroblasts containing a large number of dark inclusions which fill the central part of the cytoplasm except for the juxtanuclear zone (I cells), and clinically by severe growth impairment, minimal hepatomegaly, extreme mental and motor retardation, and clear corneas; inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, it is caused by failure of lysosomal enzymes to be incorporated into lysosomes.
- disturbance of lipid metabolism with abnormal deposit of lipids in the cells.
- caused by deficiency of sphingomyelinase, resulting in accumulation of sphingomyelin in the reticuloendothelial system, mental and physical retardation, enlarged liver and spleen, anemia, and blindness.
- severe infantile form of inherited lysosomal lipid storage disease due to deficiency of acid lipase; results in accumulation of neutral lipids, particularly cholesterol esters, within cells.
- Intestinal fat transport defect with hypobetalipoproteinemia and accumulation of apolipoprotein B-like protein in intestinal cells, deficient blood apolipoproteins, and avitaminosis E manifested by malnutrition, steatorrhea, and growth and mental retardation. Some clinical (but not biochemical) manifestations may disappear later in life.
