Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome

S Somanadhan, P J Larkin
BACKGROUND: Many rare diseases of childhood are life-threatening and chronically debilitating, so living with a rare disease is an on-going challenge for patients and their families. MPS is one of a range of rare inherited metabolic disorders (IMDs) that come under category 3 of life-limiting conditions, where there is no curative treatment available at present. Although the study of rare diseases is increasingly novel, and of clinical importance to the population, the lack of empirical data in the field to support policy and strategy development is a compelling argument for further research to be sought...

INTRODUCTION: A 13-year-old child was clinically diagnosed with mucopolysaccharidosis type VI-Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome (MPS VI) at the age of 5 years, and the diagnosis was confirmed biochemically and genetically (homozygous mutation in ARSB gene). At that time, his older brother manifested with increasing severe mental retardation. His urinary glycosaminoglycan excretion in urine was elevated, but there was only 1 mutation in the ARSB gene defining him as a healthy carrier of MPS VI. The 15-year-old boy was born with dysmorphic facial features, cleft lip and palate, and multiple contractures associated with profound skeletal deformities manifested, severe mental retardation, and seizures, leading to the diagnosis of cerebral palsy from birth on...

Several different lysosomal storage diseases, mainly mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) type I, II, and VI, are complicated by severe obstruction of the upper airways, tracheobronchial malacia, and/or stenosis of the lower airways. Although enzyme replacement therapies (ERTs) are available, the impact of these on tracheobronchial alterations has not been reported. By extending the life expectancy of MPS patients with ERTs, airway problems may become more prevalent at advanced ages. These airway abnormalities can result in severe, potentially fatal, difficulties during anesthetic procedures...

Open-heart operations in patients with mucopolysaccharidoses are exceedingly rare and pose distinct clinical challenges. Few reports exist of valve replacement in type VI mucopolysaccharidosis, mostly entailing combined mitral and aortic valve replacement. Here reported is the case of a young woman with mitral and aortic valve disease, in whom the surgical procedure was confined to the aortic valve. The rationale behind this strategy, particularly in light of the benefits offered by specific enzyme replacement therapy of type VI mucopolysaccharidosis, is discussed...

INTRODUCTION: The mucopolysaccharidoses are a group of hereditary disorders pathologically characterized by tissue accumulation of glycosaminoglycans due to deficient lysosomal metabolism which often leads to progressive airway stenosis and respiratory insufficiency. Relentless and treatment-refractory narrowing of the lower airways with ensuing severe limitation of quality of life is a challenging problem in mucopolysaccharidoses. CASE REPORTS: We report 2 cases of MPS (Hunter's and Maroteaux-Lamy's syndrome resp...

BACKGROUND: Mucopolysaccharidosis type VI or Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome is a rare genetic disorder caused by the deficiency of arylsulphatase B. The resultant accumulation of dermatan sulphate causes lysosomal damage.The clinical symptoms are related to skeletal dysplasia (i.e. short stature and degenerative joint disease). Other manifestations include cardiac disease, impaired pulmonary function, ophthalmological complications, hepatosplenomegaly, sinusitis, otitis, hearing loss and sleep apnea...

Mucopolysaccharidosis type VI (MPS VI) is a progressive, autosomal, recessive lysosomal disorder. This disorder, due to a deficiency in N-acetylgalactosamine-4-sulfatase (ASB), results in an accumulation of glycosaminoglycan (GAG), causing multiple organ failures. In this study, monochorionic biamniotic twins with the severe form of MPS VI underwent enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) with weekly infusions of recombinant human ASB (galsulfase) at 1 mg/kg. After 9 years of ERT, a comprehensive clinical examination was performed...

INTRODUCTION: Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome, or mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) type VI, is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease caused by a deficient activity of the enzyme arylsulfatase B (ARSB), required to degrade dermatan sulfate. The onset and progression of the disease vary, producing a spectrum of clinical presentation. So far, 133 mutations have been reported. The aim of this study is to determine the mutations in the ARSB gene that are responsible for this disease in Colombian patients...

The mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are a group of rare (orphan) diseases, characterised by a deficiency of enzymes involved in the metabolism of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) at lysosomal level. When there is a deficiency of a particular enzyme there is an accumulation of GAGs in the cells resulting in progressive cellular damage, which can affect multiple organ systems and lead to organ failure. Diagnosis is based on knowledge of the clinical manifestations, performing biochemical analyses to identify the type of GAG that is accumulating, and confirm the type of disorder with the corresponding enzymatic determination...

Mucopolysaccharidosis type VI (Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome, MPS VI) is a progressive multisystemic lysosomal storage disease. Physical symptoms generally include growth retardation, and bone dysplasia. Enzyme replacement therapy is the treatment of choice and is done with recombinant version of enzyme N-acetylgalactosamine 4-sulfatase (galsulfase) which is administered intravenously. The enzyme replacement therapy should be applied once a week as a life-long treatment. Division of metabolic diseases, Department of internal medicine, University Hospital Center Zagreb continues with the treatment of MPS VI patients after they turn 18 years of life and are not treated any more by the pediatricians...

BACKGROUND: It remains unclear to what extent the brain is affected by Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome (MPS VI), a progressive lysosomal storage disorder. While enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) elicits positive effects, the drug cannot cross the blood-brain barrier. We therefore studied cognitive development and brain abnormalities in the Dutch MPS VI patient population treated with ERT. METHODS: In a series of 11 children with MPS VI (age 2 to 20 years), we assessed cognitive functioning and brain magnetic resonance imaging prospectively at the start of ERT and at regular times thereafter up to 4...

BACKGROUND: Mucopolysaccharidosis type VI can be screened by measuring the lysosomal arylsulfatase B (ARSB) residual enzyme activity in dried blood spots (DBS) using synthetic substrates. However, we have found experimental obstacles when determining ARSB activity with the fluorescent method due to the significant quenching effect rendered by DBS components. METHODS: We adapted the methods originally described by Chamoles et al. [1] and Civallero et al. [2] and put forward 2 distinct approaches for ARSB activity quantification from DBS samples by measuring the 4-methylumbelliferone (β-MU) fluorescence generated from the ARSB 4-methylumbelliferone sulfate (β-MUS) substrate...

Mucopolysaccharidosis VI (MPS VI, Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome) is caused by deficient activity of the enzyme, N-acetylgalactosamine-4-sulfatase, resulting in impaired degradation of the glycosaminoglycan dermatan sulfate. Patients experience a range of manifestations including joint contractures, short stature, dysostosis multiplex, coarse facial features, decreased pulmonary function, cardiac abnormalities, corneal clouding and shortened life span. Recently, clinicians from institutions in the Asia-Pacific region met to discuss the occurrence and implications of delayed diagnosis and misdiagnosis of MPS VI in the patients they have managed...

Dentigerous cysts are odontogenic developmental cysts, which mostly surround the crown of unerupted teeth, odontomas or supernumerary teeth. These cysts are mostly solitary in occurrence and their bilateral presentation is rare, especially in the absence of syndromes such as Maroteaux-Lamy, basal cell nevus or cleidocranial dysplasia. We present an unusual case of a 24-year-old female with nonsyndromic bilateral dentigerous cysts associated with unerupted mandibular canines that were diagnosed histopathologically as dentigerous cysts...

BACKGROUND: The skeletal phenotype of mucopolysaccharidosis VI (MPS VI) is characterized by short stature and growth failure. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to construct reference growth curves for MPS VI patients with rapidly and slowly progressive disease. METHODS: We pooled cross-sectional and longitudinal height for age data from galsulfase (Naglazyme(®), BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc.), treatment naïve patients (n = 269) who participated in various MPS VI studies, including galsulfase clinical trials and their extension programs, the MPS VI clinical surveillance program (CSP), and the MPS VI survey and resurvey studies, to construct growth charts for the MPS VI population...

Mucopolysaccharidosis VI (MPS VI) is a lysosomal storage disorder caused by deficient activity of Arylsulphatase B (ARSB). The disease is progressive and multisystemic, usually leading to death in the first decades of life. In addition to supportive management, specific treatments for MPS VI are the hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and enzyme replacement therapy (ERT). Both are effective for some aspects of the disease, but fail in correcting important clinical features, such as bone deformities and heart valve thickening...
