Depending on the clinical findings at the age of onset, a severe infantile (type I) and a mild juvenile (type II) form of alpha-mannosidosis are recognized. There is considerable variation in the clinical expression with mental retardation, recurrent infections, impaired hearing and Hurler-like skeletal changes being the most consistent abnormalities.
