Mucopolysaccharidosis type IV (MPS IV), also known as Morquio syndrome, is a rare autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease. The main features include skeletal defects and possible cardiopulmonary complications. The cost of diagnosing and treating this condition is high, and treatment is not easily available everywhere. We present a case of Morquio syndrome seen in a seven-year-old male from Iraq with multiple skeletal deformities.
