Abstract

BACKGROUND: Few cases of Fabry disease, an X-linked lysosomal storage disorder, complicating pregnancy are reported.

CASE: A 36-year-old primigravida with known Fabry disease manifest with acroparesthesias, tinnitus, and hearing loss delivered a healthy unaffected infant at term.

CONCLUSION: A symptomatic Fabry carrier may experience an otherwise uncomplicated pregnancy in the absence of vital organ involvement.
