Mucolipidoses: Introduction

Mucolipidoses: A group of inherited metabolic disorders involving the accumulation of carbohydrates (glycosaminoglycans) and lipids within the tissues of the body due to a deficiencies or abnormal action of various lysosomal enzymes. This abnormal accumulation of carbohydrates and lipids within cells causes them to be damaged which often results in symptoms such as mental retardation and skeletal deformities. Symptoms may become apparent at birth or during childhood or adolescence. Premature death can occur in severe cases. There is a vast array of symptoms that can occur depending on the specific disorder involved. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Mucolipidoses is available below.
