What is Sanfilippo Syndrome?
Imagine Alzheimer’s and dementia, but in children. Sanfilippo Syndrome — also known as Mucopolysaccharidosis type III or MPS III — is a terminal, neurodegenerative rare disease. It causes children to lose all the skills they’ve gained, suffer seizures and movement disorders, experience pain and suffering, and then die, often before the second decade of life. Because of its neurodegenerative nature and multi-system impact, Sanfilippo Syndrome is often called “childhood Alzheimer’s” or “childhood dementia.” Currently there is no FDA-approved treatment or cure. But there is research happening and there is hope.
