In the patients with MPS IIA and MPS VI, T1 and T2 were prolonged in various areas of the cerebral white matter. These findings seemed to correspond with the development of pathologic changes in MPS, such as perivascular pits in the white matter observed on slices of the fixed brain. In the patients with MPS IIA and… CONTINUE READING
