In brief: Many

Fabry's is an inherited deficiency of alpha-galactosidase metabolism, more common in males but rare overall.
The most common findings are angiokeratomas of the skin, peripheral pain in the extremities, and corneal deposits (vortex) which occasionally diminish vision but do not lead to blindness. There are a lot of gi, heart and other problems. A pricey enzyme is available for treatment.
