No: Morquio's syndrome (referred to as mucopolysaccharidosis IV or morquio's) is an autosomal recessive mucopolysaccharide storage disease (see also lysosomal storage disorder), usually inherited. It is a rare type of birth defect with serious consequences. Because it is genetic, there is no cure, but it can be treated with enzyme replacement therapy.
