Abstract

We describe two cases of Fabry disease in non-blood-related Japanese men, manifesting recurrent stroke even after the start of enzyme replacement therapy. Both exhibited chronic inflammation and ocular involvement with elevated levels of serum C reactive protein prior to the onset of stroke. We, therefore, suggest the association among persistent inflammation, ocular involvement and recurrent stroke in a certain subset of Fabry disease patients. Both cases received enzyme replacement therapy with no improvement in inflammatory signs or laboratory data. These cases suggest that Fabry disease should be considered in young patients with cryptogenic stroke or CNS manifestations and fever of unknown origin.
