In dogs, as in other species, there are many hereditary forms of neuropathologic storage
diseases with symptoms comparable to GCL. In breeds that are hardly related to the

phenotypic effects. Dr. Urs Giger and his group in Pennsylvania and other scientists all over
the world are searching for other hereditary forms of storage diseases. Visit our website to
