In some, such as Hurler disease (MPS IH), Hunter disease (MPS II), and Sly disease (MPS VII), the nonneurologic manifestations of disease dominate the clinical presentation, and they are discussed in Chapter 6. In contrast, the hepatosplenomegaly in patients with SanWlippo disease (MPS III) is rarely very impressive and the radiographic evidence of dysostosis multiplex may be very subtle. Patients with SanWlippo disease usually present in the second or third year of life with a history of developmental delay, particularly aVecting speech, and characteristically horrendous behavior problems characterized by marked impulsivity, aggressiveness, hyperactivity, stereotypic motor automatisms, and nocturnal restlessness.
