Hunter syndrome (also known as mucopolysaccharidosis type II, MPS II) is a rare genetic disease that almost exclusively affects boys. The condition presents at around 2–4 years of age with a combination of symptoms, many of which overlap with common childhood complains, making it hard to diagnose.
The articles found on this page take a detailed look at some of the different Hunter syndrome symptoms, along with:
- The basics of Hunter syndrome including genetics and the metabolic effects of the disease
- The key signs and symptoms that may indicate the condition
Articles available now focus on the presence of sleep apnoea, hernias and recurrent ear and respiratory infections in children, and how they may be a sign of Hunter syndrome.
