Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
This program creates a database about treatment of patients with lysosomal storage disorders, such as Gaucher disease, Fabry disease, Pompe disease, and Mucopolysaccharidosis Type I (MPS I), also known as Hurler syndrome. By placing medical record information of many patients into a database registry for analysis, researchers hope to better understand the variability, progression and natural history of these disorders, with the ultimate goal of better guiding and assessing therapeutic interventions.
This study is accepting males and females of all ages who are being seen at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
Males and Females: All ages
