Could be mucopolysaccharides, I should think they're just ruling things out. I know it's hard, but try not to worry too much. Probably best to wait for the results before you do any research, to avoid any unnecessary worrying!

Mucopolysaccharide disease causes an enzyme deficiency which in turn means the body can't break down waste products so they accumulate in the cells. I wouldn't worry unduly at this stage, it's probably just part of a battery of routine tests they do on kids with certain other conditions.
