Poster presentation | Prevalence of intestinal disease as terminal event in MPS III Sanfilippo

The MPS Society was aware, through its work with patients and their families, that individuals with MPS III have a wide range of gastrointestinal (GI) conditions. This led to a multi-agency meeting between MPS Society and UK specialist clinics, which determined GI conditions are prevalent across all ages but have not usually caused major clinical concern. This poster presents the results from a study of 136 deceased patients to determine if GI conditions contribute to cause of death in MPS III patients and to assess the prevalence of GI conditions in patients with MPS III.


We are the only registered charity providing professional support to individuals and families affected by MPS, Fabry or a related disease in the UK.
