Hunter syndrome, or mucopolysaccharidosis type II (MPS II), is a rare genetic disorder in which large sugar molecules called glycosaminoglycans (AKA GAGs, or mucopolysaccharides) build up in body tissues. It is a form of lysosomal storage disease.Causes: Defiency of the enzyme iduronate-2-sulfatase. Neck pain or an injury can leave you feeling dizzy. This condition, known as bow hunter’s syndrome or rotational vertebral artery syndrome, makes you feel faint or dizzy when you turn your head.Author: Stephanie Booth.
Mucopolysaccharidosis type II (MPS II), also known as Hunter syndrome, is a condition that affects many different parts of the body and occurs almost exclusively in males. It is a progressively debilitating disorder; however, the rate of progression varies among affected individuals. At birth, individuals with MPS II do not display any features of the condition. When Hunter syndrome affects the brain, which is about 75% of the time, symptoms usually show up between 18 months and 4 years of age. They start about 2 years later when the disease is milder.Author: Camille Peri.
Mucopolysaccharidosis type II (MPS II – Hunter syndrome) is a rare X-linked recessive disease of lysosomal glycosaminoglycan metabolism leading to a systemic storage disorder. We report three adult brothers (aged 46–52 years) with attenuated Hunter syndrome after 12 months of enzyme replacement therapy with idursulfase.Cited by: 3. Hurler syndrome, also known as mucopolysaccharidosis Type IH (MPS-IH), Hurler's disease, and formerly gargoylism, is a genetic disorder that results in the buildup of large sugar molecules called glycosaminoglycans (AKA GAGs, or mucopolysaccharides) in lysosomes.The inability to break down these molecules results in a wide variety of symptoms caused by damage to several different organ Differential diagnosis: Hurler-Scheie syndrome; Scheie .
Hunter syndrome, or mucopolysaccharidosis II (MPS II), is a serious genetic disorder that primarily affects males. It interferes with the body’s ability to break down and recycle specific mucopolysaccharides (mew-ko-pol-ee-sak-ah-rides), also known as glycosaminoglycans (gli-ko-sah-mee-no-gli-cans) or GAGs. Feb 06, 2014 · This review aims to provide clinicians in Latin America with the most current information on the clinical aspects, diagnosis, and management of Hunter syndrome, a serious and progressive disease for which specific treatment is available. Hunter syndrome is a Cited by: 18.
