Abstract

This paper reports the case of a 14-year-old child with Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome (mucopolysaccharidosis type 6) who was treated consecutively for compressive damage of the optic nerves, hydrocephalus communicans and progressive spastic tetraparesis within 2 years. The clinical course of the patient is presented and the pathophysiologic mechanisms of disease progression in patients with Maroteux-Lamy syndrome are discussed and reviewed.
