Schindler disease: Schindler disease is a rare congenital metabolic disorder involving a deficiency of a particular enzyme (alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminidase) which results in a buildup of glycoproteins in the body. The condition originates from a genetic mutation and is an inherited disorder. There are three main types of this condition, each with varying severity. The most severe form usually results in death within a few years of birth whereas the mild form doesn't cause symptoms until after the age of 30. The type and severity of symptoms varies depending on which form of the disease is involved. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Schindler disease is available below.
