Lysosomal storage Disorders (LSD) are a group of approximately 45 rare genetic disorder caused by deficiency of certain enzymes in certain compartments of the cells. All LSDs share a common pathogenesis: a genetic defect in one or more specific lysosomal enzymes, activator protein or membrane protein, resulting in deficient enzymatic activity. In other words, when the lysosome does not function normally, excess products destined for breakdown and recycling is stored in the cell.
