In brief: Leukodystrophy Rx
Treatment there is no cure for mld.
Care focuses on treating the symptoms and preserving the patient's quality of life with physical and occupational therapy. Research is studying techniques to replace the missing enzyme (arylsulfatase a). http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/pmh0002185/.
