Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain, neck and cervical spine of five patients with the mild variant of Hunter's syndrome (iduronate sulphate sulphatase deficiency, mucopolysaccharidosis Type II, MPS II) are described and compared with the few available reports in the literature. The most prominent abnormalities in the brain include ventriculomegaly and brain atrophy, the presence of well defined cystic areas of decreased signal on T1- and increased signal on T2-weighted images, of the… CONTINUE READING
