NIH Rare Diseases:45 Fucosidosis is a lysosomal storage disease that affects many areas of the body, especially the brain. affected individuals have intellectual disability that worsens with age, and many develop dementia later in life. people with this condition often have delayed development of motor skills such as walking, and the skills they do acquire often deteriorate over time. in severe cases, symptoms appear in infancy; in milder cases, symptoms begin at age 1 or 2. fucosidosis is caused by mutations in the fuca1 gene. this condition is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern, which means both copies of the gene in each cell have mutations. the only currently available treatment is bone marrow transplant, the results of which have been variable and need further study. last updated: 11/19/2013
MalaCards based summary: Fucosidosis, also known as alpha-l-fucosidase deficiency, is related to aspartylglucosaminuria and lysosomal storage disease, and has symptoms including coarse facial features, hearing impairment and hypothyroidism. An important gene associated with Fucosidosis is FUCA1 (Fucosidase, Alpha-L- 1, Tissue), and among its related pathways are Other glycan degradation and Glycosphingolipid biosynthesis - globo series. Affiliated tissues include bone, brain and skin.
Genetics Home Reference:23 Fucosidosis is a condition that affects many areas of the body, especially the brain. Affected individuals have intellectual disability that worsens with age, and many develop dementia later in life. People with this condition often have delayed development of motor skills such as walking; the skills they do acquire deteriorate over time. Additional signs and symptoms of fucosidosis include impaired growth; abnormal bone development (dysostosis multiplex); seizures; abnormal muscle stiffness (spasticity); clusters of enlarged blood vessels forming small, dark red spots on the skin (angiokeratomas); distinctive facial features that are often described as "coarse"; recurrent respiratory infections; and abnormally large abdominal organs (visceromegaly).

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:67 Fucosidosis: An autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease characterized by accumulation of fucose-containing glycolipids and glycoproteins in various tissues. Clinical signs include facial dysmorphism, dysostosis multiplex, moderate hepatomegaly, severe intellectual deficit, deafness, and according to age, angiokeratomas.
