This chapter deals with the inherited metabolic diseases affecting the heart in which there are morphological changes sufficient to permit a tentative diagnosis to be offered by a pathologist. A large first section deals with glycogen storage disorders and is well illustrated. This is followed by discussion of lysosomal storage disorders, including Niemann–Pick disease, sections on mucopolysaccharidosis and of the commoner disorders of lipid oxidation. Disorders of iron metabolism and amino acidurias close the chapter.
