Mucolipidosis type III gamma (ML 3 gamma) is a very rare lysosomal disease that has most often been observed in the Middle East characterized by a progressive slowing of the growth rate in early childhood; stiffness and pain in shoulders hips and finger joints; a gradual mild coarsening of facial features; and by a slower progression milder clinical course and longer life expectancy than that seen in mucolipidosis type II and mucolipidosis type III alpha/beta. Cognitive function is normal or only slightly impaired and retinitis pigmentosa has been reported in a few patients. Many survive into early adulthood but ultimately succumb to cardiorespiratory insufficiency.
