mucolipidosis

 [mu″ko-lip″ĭ-do´sis] (pl. mucolipido´ses)
any of a group of genetic disorders in which both glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and lipids accumulate in tissues, but without excess of GAG in the urine.
mucolipidosis I sialidosis (type I).
mucolipidosis II a rapidly progressing disease of young children, histologically characterized by abnormal fibroblasts containing a large number of dark inclusions which fill the central part of the cytoplasm except for the juxtanuclear zone (I-cells), and clinically by severe growth impairment, minimal hepatic enlargement, extreme mental and motor retardation, and clear corneas; inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, it is due to deficiency of multiple lysosomal hydrolases. Called also I-cell disease.
mucolipidosis III a disorder similar to but milder than mucolipidosis II, and thought to be due to the same enzyme deficiency but to a lesser extent. Called also pseudo-Hurler polydystrophy.
mucolipidosis IV a form marked by early corneal clouding, psychomotor retardation, and the presence of lysosomal storage bodies; thought to be transmitted as an autosomal recessive trait.

mu·co·lip·i·do·ses

(myū'kō-lip-i-dō'sis, -sēz),
Any of a group of lysosomal storage diseases in which symptoms of visceral and mesenchymal mucopolysaccharide, glycoprotein, oligosaccharide, or glycolipid storage are present; clinically, they bear a superficial resemblance to the mucopolysaccharidoses; autosomal recessive inheritance.

/mu·co·lip·i·do·sis/ (mu″ko-lip″ĭ-do´sis) pl. mucolipido´ses   any of a group of lysosomal storage diseases in which both glycosaminoglycans (mucopolysaccharides) and lipids accumulate in tissues but without excess of the former in the urine.

mucolipidosis

(myo͞o′kō-lĭp′ĭ-dō′sĭs)
n.
Any of a several progressive genetic diseases in which glycosaminoglycans and lipids accumulate in the tissues (without excretion of glycosaminoglycans in the urine), usually appearing in infancy or early childhood and resulting in symptoms of varied severity, often including musculoskeletal abnormalties and intellectual disability.

mucolipidosis

[myo̅o̅′kōlip′idō′sis]
any of a group of metabolic disorders characterized by an accumulation of mucopolysaccharides and lipids in the tissues, but without an excess of mucopolysaccharides in the urine. Mucolipidosis includes I cell disease (mucolipidosis II) and pseudo-Hurler polydystrophy (mucolipidosis III).

mucolipidosis

Any of 4 AR lysosomal storage diseases characterized by accumulation of glycolipids in interstitial tissues, which have clinical features similar to the mucopolysaccharidoses

mucolipidosis

a group of inherited lysosomal storage diseases in which mucopolysaccharides and lipids accumulate in tissues. Mucolipidosis I is also called sialosis.

mucolipidosis II
lysosomes contain large inclusions of undigested glycosaminoglycans and glycolipids. Called also I-cell disease.

4) Diagnosis and typing of the mucolipidoses are performed by identifying specific enzyme level disparities between serum and cell extracts from cultured fibroblasts as well as through mutation analysis of the GNPTAB and GNPTG genes.
6-8) Diagnosis and typing of the mucolipidoses is performed by cultured fibroblast studies (showing that the enzymatic activity of different lysosomal hydrolases is decreased in fibroblasts and increased in serum and cell culture media) as well as through genetic techniques.
Classically, 4 distinct mucolipidoses have been recognized, and classified as type I through type IV (ML I-ML IV).

This characteristic has not been described in other mucolipidoses or in the related mucopolysachharidoses and is thus an excellent diagnostic clue.
