Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are a family of inherited metabolic diseases that results from the deficiency of lysosomal enzymes involved in the degradation of the glycosaminoglycans (mucopolysaccharides).

This report outlines the clinical and radiographic findings found in three siblings with Morquio syndrome.
