What would happen if there were no lysosomes in the cell?

Lysosomes are the membrane-bound vesicles, which contain digestive (hydrolytic) enzymes like acid hydrolase. They digest a variety of substances including worn out organelles, food particles, viruses, and bacteria.
If there were no lysosomes in the cell, it will not be able to digest food and there would be accumulation of wastes like worn out parts inside the cell. Thus, cell will not be able to survive.

Lysosome (also called suicide sacs) have proteins that break down waste. If there were no lysosomes, there would be no way to break down waste.
