About this test

Mucopolysaccharides are a group of inherited lysosomal storage disorders of connective tissue each with distinctive phenotypes and a progressive course due to severe deficiency of an enzyme which usually catalyses a step in the degradation of glycosaminoglycans.

In general, excessive quantities of glycosaminoglycans are excreted in urine which can be analysed. Specific enzyme analyses must be run for a definitive diagnosis.

Mucopolysaccharides analysis is usually performed on urine. A mucopolysaccharide storage disorder should be considered in patients with:

  • coarse faeces
  • hepatosplenomegaly
  • developmental regression
  • corneal clouding
  • stiff joints
  • dystosis multiplex
