Green List (high evidence)

The guideline includes MPS type I (Hurler), other MPS disorders in Table 1, and the diagnostic test Leukocyte MPS enzymes, genetic analysis for this. Green genes on the Mucopolysaccharideosis, Gaucher, Fabry (Version 1.2) gene panel version 1.2 (code 75) that included a Mucopolysaccharidosis phenotype were added to this panel to represent the genes that would be included on the test from the guideline.
