  • Lowe Syndrome: An X linked condition characterized by vitamin D deficiency and causing an oculocerebrorenal syndrome
  • Lowe oculocerebrorenal syndrome: A rare inherited metabolic disorder characterized primarily by eye and bone abnormalities, mental retardation and kidney problems.
  • MPS-IV (Morquio Disease): A condition which is characterized by biochemically distinct mucopolysaccharidosis
  • Marfan Syndrome type 2: A very rare syndrome characterized by some of the skeletal and heart blood vessel abnormalities seen in Marfan syndrome but there are no eye abnormalities. The genetic cause of the two types is different.
  • Marfan syndrome: A genetic connective tissue disorder involving a defect of chromosome 15q21.1 which affects the production of the fibrillin needed to make connective tissue.
  • Marfan's syndrome: A genetic connective tissue disorder involving a defect of chromosome 15q21.1 which affects the production of the fibrillin needed to make connective tissue.
  • Morquio syndrome: A rare inherited biochemical disorder characterized by the accumulation of mucopolysaccharides (glycosaminoglycans) in various body tissues due to insufficient amounts of the enzyme (galactosamine-?-sulfate - type A, ? galactosidase - type B) needed to break it down. The symptoms are variable with type A and B being clinically indistinguishable.
  • Morquio syndrome type A: A rare inherited biochemical disorder characterized by the accumulation of mucopolysaccharides (glycosaminoglycans) in various body tissues due to insufficient amounts of the enzyme (galactosamine-?-sulfate) needed to break it down.
  • Morquio syndrome, type B: A rare inherited biochemical disorder characterized by the accumulation of mucopolysaccharides (glycosaminoglycans) in various body tissues due to insufficient amounts of the enzyme (? galactosidase) needed to break it down.
  • Movement symptoms: Changes to movement or motor abilities
  • Muscle symptoms: Symptoms affecting the muscles of the body
  • Musculoskeletal symptoms: Symptoms affecting muscles or bones of the skeleton.
  • Nerve symptoms: Symptoms affecting the nerves
  • Neurological symptoms: Any symptoms that are caused by neurological conditions
  • Nonkeratan-sulfate-excreting Morquio syndrome: A rare inherited biochemical disorder characterized by the accumulation of mucopolysaccharides (glycosaminoglycans) in various body tissues due to insufficient amounts of certain enzymes needed to break it down. This disorder is distinguished form other similar conditions by the fact that no keratosulfate is excreted in the urine.
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta: Weak bones ("brittle bone disease") and loose joints
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta Type I: A rare genetic connective tissue disorder characterized by fragile bones, blue sclerae and hyperextensible joints.

  • Proximal spinal muscular atrophy, type 1: A type of spinal muscular atrophy which is a progressive genetic motor neuron disease involving the nerves and muscles. The condition is relatively rare and is characterized by muscle weakness which leads to structural deformities and loss or reduced capability of normal body movements. SMA type I is the most debilitating form as muscular weakness is evident at birth and diagnosis usually occurs within the first three months.
  • Retinopathy pigmentary -- intellectual deficit: A rare syndrome characterized by eye disease and mental retardation.
  • Rheumatic conditions: Any condition that affects ones joints
