Superimposed Mongolian spot and mucopolysaccharidosis VI
Case-based review, 56 - 58Tag this article
Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are a heterogeneous group of inborn errors of metabolism characterized by accumulation of glycosaminoglycans in several tissues. Extrasacral, extensive and persistent Mongolian spots (MS) were reported in some lysosomal storage disorders, mainly in MPS I, MPS II and MPS VI. The presence of superimposed MS has been very rarely reported. Here, we describe, for the first time, the association of superimposed MS in a patient with extensive and persistent MS and MPS VI.
KEY WORDS: mongolian spots; mucopolysaccharidosis; MPS VI.
