INTRODUCTION Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are a group of lysosomal storage disorders characterized by tissue deposition of glycosaminoglycans (GAG). Their musculoskeletal abnormalities and the GAG storage in the airway result in increased risk for patients undergoing anesthesia. This study evaluates a multi-disciplinary airway management approach and reports upper and lower airway findings of flexible bronchoscopy performed during these procedures.
