    Abstract

    A case of glycolipid lipoidosis (Fabry's disease) in a 27-year-old man is recorded. The case is unusual in that despite extensive disease evidenced by widespread skin lesions, ocular abnormalities, and proteinuria, renal function was only minimally impaired. Electron microscope studies of kidney and skin showed that most cells contained the characteristic lipid described in this condition.
