Any of a group of lysosomal storage diseases in which symptoms of visceral and mesenchymal mucopolysaccharide, glycoprotein, oligosaccharide, or glycolipid storage are present; clinically, they bear a superficial resemblance to the mucopolysaccharidoses; autosomal recessive inheritance. [muco- + lipid + -osis, condition]
- m. I [MIM*256550] m. somewhat like a mild form of Hurler syndrome with coarse facial features, macular cherry red spots, myoclonus epilepsy, mild dysostosis multiplex, and moderate mental retardation due to neuraminidase deficiency; autosomal recessive inheritance caused by mutation in the neuraminidase gene (NEU) on 6p. SYN: lipomucopolysaccharidosis.
- m. II [MIM*252500] a metabolic disorder with onset in early childhood characterized by clinical and radiographic findings similar to those in Hurler syndrome including gum hypertrophy, thoracic dysplasia, congenital hip dislocation, and mental retardation; vacuolated lymphocytes and unusual inclusion bodies in cultured fibroblasts (I-cells) are found; lysosomal enzymes are increased in serum, spinal fluid, and urine; urinary mucopolysaccharides are normal; associated with a deficiency of N-acetylglucosaminyl-1-phosphotransferase; autosomal recessive inheritance. SYN: I-cell disease, inclusion cell disease.
- m. III [MIM*252600] m. with mild Hurlerlike symptoms, restricted joint mobility, short stature, mild mental retardation, and dysplastic skeletal changes, especially of the hip; aortic and mitral valve disease are often present; associated with a deficiency of N-acetyl-α-glucosaminidase or other enzyme deficiencies such as lysosomal enzyme N-acetylglucosaminyl-1-phosphotransferase in mutant fibroblasts lacks the ability to recognize lysosomal enzymes and specific substrates for phosphorylation; autosomal recessive inheritance. SYN: pseudo-Hurler polydystrophy, pseudopolydystrophy.
- m. IV [MIM*252650] psychomotor retardation with cloudy corneas and retinal degeneration, with inclusion cells in cultured fibroblasts; the pathogenesis is uncertain; autosomal recessive inheritance.

mu·co·lip·i·do·sis (mu″ko-lip″ĭ-doґsis) pl. mucolipidoґses. any of a group of lysosomal storage diseases in which both glycosaminoglycans (mucopolysaccharides) and lipids accumulate in tissues but without excess of glycosaminoglycans in the urine.
