Hidden in Plain Sight: Recognizing Manageable Conditions  

Lauren Flueckinger, MS, CGC | Elizabeth Vengoechea, MS, CGC

 

This presentation will provide an introduction to lysosomal storage disorders (LSDs), a family of genetic diseases characterized by pathologic build-up of undegraded storage material in lysosomes as a result of enzyme deficiencies. More than 50 LSDs have been identified, and many are now treatable. Five of these disorders will be discussed, providing an overview of the pathophysiology, and signs and symptoms of the diseases. Methods of diagnosis will be described, including the availability of newborn screening for certain LSDs.
