Activity Description

Mucopolysaccharidosis I (MPS I) follows an autosomal recessive inheritance pattern. Therefore, diagnosing a person with this disease means that their close relatives should also be tested to see if they have the disease or are carriers of the disease. Both scenarios can be useful to plan the person’s future as an individual and as a potential parent. In this module, our faculty educator will explore genetic counseling for MPS I.
