About Hunter syndrome

Hunter syndrome, also known as mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) type II, is a severe lysosomal storage condition that occurs when cells can’t break down long chains of sugar molecules. This causes progressive damage to many organs. Hunter syndrome primarily affects males, with symptoms starting in early childhood. Patients with severe disease experience progressive cognitive decline, breathing issues, and cardiac disease, and many pass away at a young age. New and more effective treatments are needed for Hunter syndrome.
