Purpose

Mucopolysaccharidosis type II (MPS II or Hunter syndrome) is a rare lysosomal storage disorder caused by iduronate-2-sulfatase (IDS) deficiency. MPS II causes a wide phenotypic spectrum of symptoms ranging from mild to severe. IDS activity, which is measured in leukocyte pellets or fibroblasts, was reported to be related to clinical phenotype by Sukegawa-Hayasaka et al. Measurement of residual plasma IDS...

Glycogen storage disease (GSD) and mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) are both independently inherited disorders. GSD is a member of a group of genetic disorders involving enzymes responsible for the synthesis and degradation of glycogen. GSD leads to abnormal tissue concentrations of glycogen, primarily in the liver, muscle, or both. MPS is a member of a group of inherited lysosomal storage diseases, which...

Authors experienced a case of Hunter syndrome in 4 old male patient, whose diagnosis was established by typical findings in physical examination, family history, screening test using methylene blue for mucopolysaccaharides, and radiologic studies. We report this case with a brief review of literatures.

Authors experienced a case of Hunter syndrome in a 5 year old girl who was admitted to Pediatric Department of Dong-San Hospital, Keimyung University for the evaluation of short stature and mental retardation. Patient had characteristic peculiar features of mucopolysaccharidoses and changes in skull, rib, vertebra and long bone radiography. Corneal clouding was absent. Screenings test using methylene blue for mucopolysaccharidoses was positive. The review of...
