Typically, there is a change in the way body reacts to a foreign invasion which normally happens in healthy individuals when white blood cells fight the disease causing microorganisms. The signs and symptoms vary largely from one person to another. Affected people usually have a higher count of white blood cells.

Bone marrow transplantation is the only effective treatment till date and can be curative. For patients with type II, correcting the underlying defect with fucose supplementation is recommended. Gene therapy is suggested for certain cases. Patients with mild or moderate disease can survive into young adulthood.
