FSIG Helps Educate Clinicians About Fabry Disease

MARCH 11, 2014

FSIG (Fabry Support and Information Group) is a non-profit patient organization that also helps educate physicians about Fabry disease.

Fabry disease is often difficult to diagnose since signs and symptoms are often nonspecific. In this exclusive interview with Rare Disease Report, Jack Johnson of FSIG talks about some of the programs they have in place to help clinicians - especially ophthalmologists - learn how to recognize the symptoms of with Fabry disease.

Fabry disease is an X-linked lysosomal storage disorder that leads to excessive deposition of globotriaosylceramide ( GL-3) throughout the body. Skin, eye, kidney, heart, brain, and peripheral nervous system are highly vulnerable.
