Lysosomal storage diseases (LSDs) are a rare distinct group of disorders with complex diagnosis and limited epidemiology data, such as Pompe disease. In recognition of International Pompe Day, marked on April 15, we created the below infographic to provide some insight into epidemiology and present an overview of current treatment options.
