Lipidoses are inborn errors of metabolism resulting in a progressive accumulation of lipid material in the nervous system and visceral organs due to a genetic absence or disfunction of an acid hydrolase acting on tissue complex lipids as well as on other substances.

In 11 patients, 7 patients by metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD); 2 by GM 1 -gangliosidosis; 2 by GM 2 -gangliosidosis.
