Highlights

Fucosidosis is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disorder caused by reduced or absent alpha-L-fucosidase enzyme activity.

 

For an individual clinically suspicious for an oligosaccharidosis and with a positive screening result (OLIGU / Oligosaccharide Screen, Urine; OLIWB / Oligosaccharidoses Screen, Leukocytes or OLITC / Oligosaccharidoses Screen, Fibroblasts) suggestive of fucosidosis, determining enzymatic activity is the next step of the diagnostic workup.

 

This test cannot be used to establish carrier status for fucosidosis.
