International Center for Fabry Disease

The International Center for Fabry Disease at Icahn School of Medicine is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of Fabry disease. Fabry disease, named after one of its discoverers, Johannes Fabry, is a genetic syndrome characterized by attacks of burning pain in the hands and feet, dark skin lesions, and progressive kidney problems. Our comprehensive clinical and research program offers diagnostic testing, complete evaluations, consultations, and treatment, as well as counseling for couples at risk to have children with Fabry disease. Research includes basic and clinical-related studies, including a variety of molecular techniques to uncover the basis of clinical heterogeneity, and clinical investigations to elucidate the natural history of Fabry disease.

An expert team of subspecialists in clinical genetics, genetic counseling, nephrology, cardiology, neurology, ophthalmology, and obstetrics/gynecology is experienced in the latest techniques for evaluation, diagnosis, and individualized treatment of adults and children.

All of our physicians and genetic counselors are board certified or board eligible by the American Board of Medical Genetics and the American Board of Genetic Counseling.
