Abstract

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. The previously described biochemical procedures set up for the detection of lipidoses were applied. In 11 patients, 7 patients by metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD); 2 by GM 1 -gangliosidosis; 2 by GM 2 -gangliosidosis.
