Welcome to HunterPatients!
Hunter syndrome, or mucopolysaccharidosis II (MPS II) is a serious genetic disorder that primarily affects males. Hunter syndrome is one of several related lysosomal storage diseases. It interferes with the body’s ability to break down and recycle specific mucopolysaccharides (mew-ko-pol-ee-sak-ah-rides).
