Mucopolysaccharidosis type II (MPSII) is an X-linked lysosomal storage disorder caused by deficiency of the enzyme iduronate-2-sulfatase (IDS). The human IDS gene is located in chromosome Xq28. This is the first report of genotype and phenotype characterization of 49 Hunter patients from 40 families of Argentina. Thirty different alleles have been identified, and 57% were novel. The frequency of de novo mutations was 10%. Overall, the percentage of private mutations in our series was 75%.
