The Canadian Society for Mucopolysaccharide and Related Diseases, Inc. (CSMRDI) is an international voluntary health organization based in Ontario. Founded in 1984, the society is dedicated to functioning as a parent support group; increasing public awareness of the mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) and related diseases; and raising funds for further research into MPS. The mucopolysaccharidoses are a group of rare hereditary diseases of lysosomal storage. These disorders are characterized by the abnormal accumulation of mucopolysaccharides in various tissues of the body such as the central nervous system, respiratory system, cardiovascular system, liver, spleen, and/or other areas. Although symptoms and findings may vary depending upon the form of the disease present, affected children often have distinctive facial abnormalities, skeletal malformations, growth delays, and mental retardation. The Canadian Society for Mucopolysaccharide and Related Diseases works through provincial families to provide local support to families of children who have recently been diagnosed; holds conferences where families and professionals can exchange ideas and information; funds research on MPS disorders; and funds the purchase of equipment for medical research. The society publishes a regular newsletter and a variety of other educational materials.
