About this series – Telehealth for Genetics Residents and Fellows. A monthly teaching session brought to you by the members of the RCPSC Specialty Committee in Medical Genetics.

Title: Approach To Mucopolysaccharidoses
Starting with the biochemistry of glycosaminoglycans, we will review the pathophysiology of mucopolysaccharidoses. Attendees will learn to distinguish between the various subtypes based on their clinical presentations and diagnostic test results. At the end, we will compare the various treatment modalities available as well as strategies for the development of future treatments.

Learning Objectives

        • Describe the general pathophysiology of mucopolysaccharidoses.
        • Distinguish between the different subtypes of mucopolysaccharidoses.
        • Compare the different treatment modalities/strategies for managing.
