Hydroxychloroquine-induced lipidosis of the kidney mimicking Fabry disease: a case report

Abstract

A 51-year-old female patient with Sjogren’s syndrome had a renal insufficiency after 2 months’ history of hydroxychloroquine therapy (300 mg/d, cumulative dose of about 18 g). The renal biopsy suggested Fabry disease. The gene analysis and plasma a-galactosidase A activity were in the normal range. After quitting the therapy of hydroxychloroquine, the renal function returned to its normal state in the next 3 months’ follow-up.
