BACKGROUND: Lysosomal acid lipase deficiency (LALD, OMIM#278000) is a rare lysosomal disorder with an autosomal recessive inheritance. The main clinical manifestations are related to a progressive accumulation of cholesteryl esters, triglycerides or both within the lysosome in different organs such as the liver, spleen, and cardiovascular system. A wide range of clinical severity is associated with LALD including a severe very rare antenatal/neonatal/infantile phenotype named Wolman disease and a late-onset form named cholesteryl ester storage disease (CESD). METHODS: This study aimed to investigate a cohort of at-risk patients (4174) presenting with clinical or biological signs consistent with LALD using the assessment of LAL activity on dried blood spots. RESULTS: LAL activity was lower than 0.05 nmol/punch/L (cut-off: 0.12) in 19 patients including 13 CESD and 6 Wolman. Molecular study has been conducted in 17 patients and succeeded in identifying 34 mutated alleles. Fourteen unique variants have been characterized, 7 of which are novel. CONCLUSION: This study allowed to identify a series of patients and expanded the molecular spectrum knowledge of LALD. Besides, a new screening criteria grid based on the clinical/biological data from our study and the literature has been proposed in order to enhance the diagnosis rate in at risk populations.
