What is Fabry's disease?

Fabry disease is a rare genetic disorder that causes a lack of or decreased amount of alpha-galactosidase-A, an enzyme that is needed for the body to break down a specific type of fat. As a result, this fat can accumulate throughout the body which can lead to complications with many organs.
