Epithelial –mesenchymal transition (EMT) describes rapid changes in cellular phenotype. During EMT, epithelial cells down-modulate cell–cell adhesion, alter polarity, reorganize cytoskeleton, become isolated, motile, and resistant to anoikis. Epithelial breakdown and epithelial cell migration are the key p rocesses involved in the obliteration of processus vaginalis. The great majority of abnormalities are because of nonobliteration or incomplete fusion of PV. We aimed to analyze the quantitative changes of epithelial genes in adult/child patients and their controls to examine differences of the genes is of these hernias.

Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) I is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disorder resulting from a deficiency in the lysosomal enzyme α-l-iduronidase, leading to the accumulation of the glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) dermatan sulfate (DS) and heparan sulfate (HS) in cells throughout the body. The clinical characteristics of MPS I include cognitive impairment (severe form), coarse facial features, corneal clouding, respiratory disorder s, cardiac diseases, hepatomegaly, umbilical and inguinal hernias, skeletal abnormalities, and joint contractures.
