Sanfilippo Syndrome Type C is a degenerative disease caused by an enzyme deficiency which affects the nervous system and is fatal for the boys and girls who suffer from it. Symptoms of the disease usually appear between the ages of two and four and cause death around the time the child reaches adolescence.
Sanfilipoo Syndrome Type C is an incurable disease, with no cure or palliative treatments, that starts to show when the child is small. During their early years, the disease sets backs their overall development, affecting their ability to speak, learn and even sleep, causing epilepsy and convulsions. Over time the condition worsens, leading to behavioural problems, hyperactivity, aggressive behaviour and self-inflicted injuries. In the final stages, the child loses the ability to speak, walk, eat and so on until the disease claims their life in their teenage years.
