Abstract A normotensive 50-year-old man was evaluated for cardiac symptoms associated with left ventricular hypertrophy (LFH). His symptoms were caused by cardiac involvement from Anderson–Fabry disease (AFD), an X linked lysosomal storage disease caused by mutations in the GLA gene which encodes for the lysosomal enzyme -galactosidase A. He was treated with recombinant enzyme but the clinical course was complicated by arrhythmias and the patient required an internal cardioverter defibrillator.
