Treatment of Schimke immunoosseous dysplasia (SIOD) is based on addressing individual symptoms as they develop. Renal transplantation can treat the renal disease, and bone marrow transplantation has been done to treat the immunodeficiency. Blood thinning medications can transiently improve blood flow through the atherosclerotic arteries but do not provide enduring relief from cerebral ischemia. Treatment with acyclovir and some antibacterial agents has been beneficial for preventing of reducing the frequency of opportunistic infections.  More detailed information about treatment for SIOD can be found on the GeneReview's Web site. Click on the GeneReview link to read more.
