Mucopolysaccharide (MPS) metabolism in cultured skin fibroblasts was studied in one case of each of the following osteochondrodysplasias: chondrodysplasia punctata of the rhizomelic type, thanatophoric dysplasia, campomelic dysplasia, and osteogenesis imperfecta congenita. Accumulation of both sulfated and non-sulfated MPS, as well as secretion of total MPS, was normal in chondrodysplasia punctata of the rhizomelic type and in thanatophoric dysplasia. Accumulation of both sulfated and non-sulfated MPS was normal in campomelic dysplasia. Lastly, accumulation of sulfated MPS was normal in osteogenesis imperfecta congenita.
