large eukaryotic cell /small eukaryotic cell

[b] the large eukaryotic cell name and type :
1) Hunter Syndrome:= In its absence, mucopolysaccharides collect in various body tissues, causing damage. Affected children may develop an early-onset type (severe form) shortly after age 2 that causes a large skull, coarse facial features, profound mental retardation , spasticity , aggressive behavior, joint stiffness and death before age 20. A late-onset type (mild form) causes later and less severe symptoms.
Small eukaryotic cell name and type:
1) Small bowel bacterial overgrowth is a syndrome that involves excessive numbers of bacteria growing in the small intestines. The large numbers of bacteria compete for nutrients with the person who has the condition. As a result, the person with the condition may not absorb enough nutrients.

In addition, the breakdown of nutrients by the bacteria in the small intestines can damage the cells lining the intestinal wall.

Alternative Names:
Overgrowth - intestinal bacteria; Bacterial overgrowth - intestine
