Hunter Syndrome (MPS II)
The mucopolysaccharidoses are a group of inherited metabolic disorders that result from a deficiency of enzymes required for the breakdown of intracellular molecules. Charles Hunter, a Canadian internist first described this type in two brothers in the 1950s.

Symptoms are treated as they appear. Hunter syndrome is the most common of the mucopolysaccharide disorders.

Hunter syndrome: A genetic metabolic disorder that arises from deficiency of the enzyme iduronate sulfatase, resulting in tissue deposits of molecules called mucopolysaccharides.

These disorders are also known as Hunter syndrome A or B. All types of MPS II affect the enzyme iduronate sulfatase. A deficiency in iduronate sulfatase will result in an increased level of the glycosaminoglycans chondroitin sulfate B and heparitin sulfate.

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.

All of the Mucopolysaccharidoses, except Hunter Syndrome (which has has an X-linked recessive mode of inheritance , which limits the syndrome to the male sex), have an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance .

stigmata associated with syndromes known to include sensorineural hearing loss (Downes, CHARGE, Waardenburg)
syndromes associated with progressive hearing loss (neurofibromatosis, osteopetrosis, and Usher' s syndrome
neurodegenerative disorders (Hunter Syndrome) and/or head trauma.

a form of mucopolysaccharidosis called Hurler syndrome often die before age 10 from obstructive airway disease, respiratory infections, or cardiac complications.
