Fabry disease belongs to lysosomal storage disorders and can be successfully treated today. On the contrary, the correct diagnostic classification of its symptoms can be challenging and most patients suffer from pain for years, until they are diagnosed correctly. The aim of this project was to characterize patients with unclassified extremity pain and to present a simple algorithm for a retrospective stratification approach.
