mucolipidosis

(redirected from ML I)

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.

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

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