Dilatative arterial malformations in patients with late onset Pompe disease (LOPD)


Pompe disease is a rare inherited multisystemic metabolic disorder with involvement of several tissues and organs including smooths cells. Some reports have documented cerebrovascular malformations as aneurysms or vertebrobasilar dolicoectasia in patients with Pompe disease whereas the occurrence of arterial malformations is quite rare in different sites. We describe the presence and type of arterial abnormalities in three of late onset Pompe disease (LOPD) patients. A cerebral, thoracic and abdominal CT angiography, was used to study these patients.
