Glossary for Angiokeratoma

  • Circulatory system conditions: Medical conditions affecting the heart and the circulatory system.
  • Fabry's Disease: Genetic fat storage disorder
  • Fucosidosis: A rare progressive biochemical disorder involving deficiency of an enzyme (alpha-fucosidase) which results in accumulation of certain chemicals (glycosphingolipids) in the central nervous system and other body tissues.
  • Gangliosidosis GM1 type 3: A rare biochemical disorder involving a deficiency of an enzyme (beta-galactosidase A) which results in the accumulation of harmful chemicals (GM1 gangliosides) in the central nervous system and other body tissues. Type III involves a lesser degree of accumulation than type II or I.
  • Gangliosidosis, generalized GM1 type 3: A rare biochemical disorder involving a deficiency of an enzyme (beta-galactosidase A) which results in the accumulation of harmful chemicals (GM1 gangliosides) in the central nervous system and other body tissues. Type III involves a lesser degree of accumulation than type II or I.
  • Goldberg syndrome: A rare lysosomal storage disorder characterized by an enzyme deficiency (neuraminidase and beta-galactosidase) which results in a build-up of glycoproteins in the urine. There are three main subtypes: infantile, juvenile and adult forms. The early infantile form is the most severe and often results in death during infancy.
  • Melanoma: Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer. It is the leading cause of death from skin disease. It involves cells called melanocytes, which produce a skin pigment called melanin. Melanin is responsible for skin and hair color.
  • Neuraminidase deficiency, type II, juvenile form: A rare inherited disorder involving an enzyme (neuraminidase and beta-galactosidase) deficiency which results in a build up of glycoproteins (sialyloligosaccharides) in the urine. The juvenile form of the condition is less severe than the infantile form which causes death within months of birth.
  • Sialidosis type II, juvenile: A very rare inherited metabolic disorder where a defect in the enzyme alpha-neuraminidase prevents glycoproteins being metabolized.
  • Skin conditions: Any condition that affects the skin
  • Telangiectasia: The permanent dilation of pre-existing small blood vessels
