Treatment remains largely supportive. Summary and related texts. The diagnosis may be confirmed by assay of enzyme levels in tissue samples and gene sequencing. The neurological involvement becomes more prominent around the age of 10 years with loss of motor milestones and communication problems. It is caused by a deficiency in one of the enzymes needed to break down the glycosaminoglycan GAG heparan sulfate which is found in the extra-cellular matrix and on cell surface glycoproteins.

The frequency of the different subtypes varies between countries: GAGs are stored in the cell lysosome, and degraded by glycosidases, sulfatases and acetyltransferases.
In the final phase of the illness, children become increasingly immobile and unresponsive, often require wheelchairs, and develop swallowing difficulties and seizures. In early childhood, they begin to develop developmental disability and loss of previously learned skills. The neurological degradation accompanied by multiple complications requires a multidisciplinary management to allow adapted symptomatic treatment.
