Lysosomes play a pivotal role in cellular processes through an active interplay of enzymes, lysosomal membrane proteins, and cytosolic proteins. Lysosomal storage diseases are a group of inherited and acquired disorders. Clinically affected animals are presented with developmental and neurological symptoms. This review aims to discuss the function of lysosomes, the pathogenesis of lysosomal storage disease, and its diagnosis.
