Abstract
Fabry's disease is a chromosomal X-linked inherited disease, which causes a lack of the lysosomal alpha-galactosidase A enzyme leading to a cellular accumulation of glycosphingolipids. This accumulation leads to various clinical disorders, including inner ear lesions, with sensorineural hearing loss and dizziness. This article proposes to describe a clinical case of a patient suffering from Fabry's disease with inner ear associated problems and to review the literature focusing on this subject.
