Customer Question

My son is 3 and a papule appeared under his belly button, along his shorts line. It looks like an anigoma based on internet research. Ill post a photo. Im worried about Fabrys. There is NO fabrys in my entire family history. it is X linked and my Dad is 64 and healthy, my mom and her family, lived late in life with no Fabrys. He has no other symptoms. Can children develop these normally?

Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 2 years ago.
thank you very much for the history provided and the photo image.
From the history and the photo sent, there is no signs of Fabry's . Do not worry about the same.
Please do not worry about fabry's.
This solitary angioma is a correct diagnosis that you have made and there is nothing to worry . We also call it Cherry Angioma . A single angioma is a benign harmless condition and you dont have to worry about it.
Fabry's disease is associated with multiple Angiokeratomas . It is not related to a single Angioma. Do not worry .
Please do get back to me in case of any further queries.
I would be happy to assist you .
