For healthcare professionals
MPS and related lysosomal diseases can be hard to detect. So we want to give you the tools to be able to learn about MPS, Fabry and related diseases in order for children with the condition to receive a faster diagnosis.

Focus on ENT symptoms
More than 90% of MPS patients have head and neck manifestations (4,5). One of the first signs of MPS is often recurrent ear and upper respiratory infections and many patients will have their tonsils and adenoids removed (3). ENT specialists are therefore often among the first specialists to see a child with MPS. Whilst we want to encourage clinicians from all specialities to think MPS, starting with ENT was the logical choice.
Think Rare, Think MPS
To find out more about our Think Rare, Think MPS campaign, please read our blog post below.
The MPS Society is committed to bringing about change in the diagnostic journey of children affected by these rare conditions. The Think Rare, Think MPS campaign supports earlier recognition of the signs and symptoms of MPS diseases by engaging with and educating the healthcare professionals most likely to see a patient with MPS in the early stages of the disease. #Spotthesigns
