In brief: Treat symptoms

While there is no cure for this inherited disorder, it is worth determining which of the 6 types the affected person has.
This may guide the needs for cardiac evaluation for valvular or vascular problems, eye exams for vision problem such as lens dislocation, or high-risk obstetric care.
