Maroteaux–Lamy syndrome (also known as Mucopolysaccharidosis type VI" or Polydystrophic Dwarfism) is a form of mucopolysaccharidosis caused by a deficiency in arylsulfatase B (ARSB). It is named after Pierre Maroteaux (1926-), and his mentor, Maurice Emil Joseph Lamy (1895-1975), both French physicians.
Famous quotes containing the word syndrome:
“Women are taught that their main goal in life is to serve othersfirst men, and later, children. This prescription leads to enormous problems, for it is supposed to be carried out as if women did not have needs of their own, as if one could serve others without simultaneously attending to ones own interests and desires. Carried to its perfection, it produces the martyr syndrome or the smothering wife and mother.”
—Jean Baker Miller (20th century)
