This in turn leads to the accumulation of glycosaminoglycans, dermatan and heparan sulphate. The intra and extracellular accumulation of this substances lead to multisystemic organ abnormality. We present a patient with Hunter syndrome who presented with involvement of the skin, cardiovascular system, the eyes and musculoskeletal system. We have also included a literature review.
