Hurler-Scheie syndrome


Hurler-Scheie syndrome
one of the three allelic disorders of mucopolysaccharidosis I, with clinical features intermediate between the Hurler and the Scheie syndromes, caused by deficiency of L-iduronidase, and specifically characterized by receding chin (micrognathism). Symptoms include mental retardation, dwarfism, dysostosis multiplex, corneal clouding, deafness, hernia, stiff joints (claw hand), and valvular heart disease. Patients survive until their late teens or twenties. Called also mucopolysaccharidosis IH/S.
