Complications from other symptoms, such as kidney problems, can become life-threatening. It is associated with learning difficulties, diminished sex hormones, and stiffness of the muscles and joints. It affects both men and women equally but is not common. LMS is also an inherited disease. Typically, the parents themselves do not have LMS but carry the gene from one of their own parents. Visual examinations and clinical evaluations will look for different abnormalities and delays. LMS is usually diagnosed when testing for developmental delays, such as screenings for speech inhibition, general learning disabilities, and auditory problems.

For LMS, there are no treatments currently approved to handle the disorder. Ophthalmic support, such as glasses or other aids, can help worsening vision. To help treat short stature and growth delays, hormone therapy may be recommended.

Speech and occupational therapy can improve dexterity and daily living skills. Renal therapy and kidney support treatments may be necessary.
