    Correct answer:

    Yes, it’s Hurler’s syndrome, also known as gargoylism. It’s a lysosomial storage disease; there is an accumulation of sphingolipids, essential components of CNS membranes. Patients have a developmental delay and in the second 6 months of life the characteristic facies and frontal bossing begin to emerge.
