The effects of Mucopolysaccharidosis

The effects of Mucopolysaccharidosis

The effects of Mucopolysaccharidosis varies between patients because of the different types of Mucopolysaccharidosis.

Some of the symptoms that your child may be experiencing are:

  • Neurological complications, such as poor communication throughout the body due to damage to neurons (which send and receive messages).
  • Pain due to damage of the connective tissue, tendons, bones and nerves.
  • Poor motor function due to the damage to the neurons (nerve cells)
  • Cognitive impairments
  • Developmental delay
  • Communicating Hydrocephalus which is blockage of the normal fluid in the brain meaning there is excessive fluid which will increases the intracranial pressure.
  • Dyplasia which is abnormal englargement of an organ or tissue for example the liver
  • Progressive joint stiffness
  • Ligament laxity making the joint less stable
