Hunter syndrome is an X-linked recessive genetic disease characterized by a deficiency of lysosomal enzymes responsible for the hydrolysis of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), with males more likely to develop disease and females more likely to be carriers.

• Determine the likelihood of Hunter syndrome using with established diagnosis methods, given a patient case
• Describe options available to treat Hunter syndrome and design a medical plan to treat a patient with Hunter syndrome
• Describe present barriers to care in the treatment of patients with Hunter syndrome
