166 Possible Causes for Progressive Lumbar Gibbus, Thickening of the Mitral Valve Leaflets

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    RATIONALE: Mucopolysaccharidosis type VI (MPS VI) or Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome is produced by the deficiency of the enzyme arylsulfatase B, responsible for the hydrolysis of N-acetyl-D-galactosamine, chondroitin sulfate, and dermatan sulfate. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 3-year-old male with Moroccan origins is the index[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 1 H-S

    Progressive thickening and stiffening of the valve leaflets can lead to mitral and aortic regurgitation, which may become hemodynamically significant in the later stages of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse

    Two groups of patients were compared: those with thickening of the mitral-valve leaflets and redundancy (designated the classic form; n 319) and those without leaflet thickening[oadoi.org] Rheumatic mitral stenosis Rheumatic mitral valve stenosis Clinical Information Narrowing of the left atrioventricular mitral orifice Rheumatic disease causing diffuse thickening[icd9data.com] […] of mitral-valve prolapse, but not for stroke.[oadoi.org]
