Multiple Sulphatase Deficiency

Multiple Sulphatase Deficiency – MSD

Multiple Sulfatase Deficiency (MSD) is a lysosomal storage disorder closely related to the mucopolysaccharidoses in which all twelve of the known sulfatase enzymes are deficient or inoperative. MSD may also be called Austin’s disease.

At the present time, there is no cure for children affected by MSD, but there are many ways of helping children to enjoy their lives and to manage the problems they will face. It may be that treatment will be available in the future.
