Lipid Storage Disorders

Lipid storage disorders, or lipidoses, are a category of genetic metabolic disorders characterized by harmful levels of excessive lipids that may accumulate in the cells and tissues. The body does not produce enough enzymes to metabolize the fats, causing cellular and tissue damage over time. Permanent damage can occur in the brain, peripheral nervous system, liver, spleen and bone marrow.
