ABSTRACTAnderson-Fabry´s disease is a genetic and hereditary disorder caused by the deficiency or absence of the enzyme alpha-galactosidase leading to accumulation of globotriacilceramida in different cells causing many clinical manifestations. It is considered the second most common storage disease after Gaucher´s disease. We describe a patient who presented musculoskeletal manifestations of Fabry´s disease.
