Three cases of Morquio-Ullrich disease have been presented. The disease is characterized by clinical and roentgenographic findings, similar to those found in Morquio-Brailsford disease, with the additional findings of cloudiness of the corneas, hepatosplenomegaly, Reilly granulations in the leukocytes, and urinary excretion of large amounts of keratosulphate. These additional findings seem to be as constant in this disease as they are in Hurler's disease.
The importance of the biochemical findings in the characterization of Morquio-Ullrich disease is discussed.
