Genetical Cardiomyopathies: from patient to family

Our body works as a whole and thus, a systemic disease can lead to impairment in multiple organs. For example, Fabry disease, one of the inherited lysosomal storage diseases, can affect the heart, kidneys and skin. One can also think of amyloidosis, with its extensive clinical picture which may send the patient to different specialists before being diagnosed. Systemic diseases are therefore a medical challenge and their expression at the level of the cardiovascular system may put the patient’s life at risk.
