Griscelli syndrome type 2

How might Griscelli syndrome type 2 be treated?

Bone marrow transplantation is the most effective treatment and the only possible cure for Griscelli syndrome type 2 (GS2). Immunosuppressive therapies may be used in preparation for transplantation, and to suppress damage to multiple organs caused by hemophagocytic lymphohistiocystosis. Recurrent infections may be minimized with antibacterial and antiviral medications. In addition, avoiding interactions that increase the risk of infection is important.

Additional information about various medications used to treat GS2 can be viewed on Medscape Reference's website here.
