Abstract


Morquio syndrome is a rare lysosomal storage disease that affects multiple organ systems. However, it is rarely associated with malignancy. We present the case of a 30-year old man with Morquio syndrome associated with gastric adenocarcinoma. This case also demonstrates two other findings that have not been previously described in patients with Morquio syndrome - malrotation of brainstem and cerebellum, without clinical neurologic deficit, and persistence of fetal lobulation in the kidneys

Keywords


Lysosomal storage diseases; Mucopolysaccharidosis IV; Stomach Neoplasm
