Farber disease, a lysosomal storage disorder, has a dismal prognosis leading to death with progressive granulomatous inflammation, even in patients without central nervous system involvement (type 2/3). We report the first successful hematopoietic stem cell transplantations in 2 patients with Farber disease type 2/3, resulting in resolution of symptoms.
