Wiskott Aldrich syndrome (WAS) is a disease with immunological deficiency and reduced ability to form blood clots. Signs and symptoms include easy bruising. Wiskott Aldrich syndrome (WAS) is inherited in an X-linked recessive manner. A condition is X-linked if the responsible gene is located on the X chromosome. My husband’s grandmother had three children. Two of her sons with Wiskott Aldrich syndrome (WAS) died at ages 7 and 3. My husband’s father did not have it.

The syndrome is named after Dr. The disease almost exclusively affects males.

X-linked agammaglobulinemia Transient hypogammaglobulinemia of infancy. Spontaneous nose bleeds and bloody diarrhea are also common and eczema typically develops within the first month of life. Immunoglobulin replacement therapy and oral antibiotics prevent infections.

Management and treatment The only curative treatment to date is hematopoietic stem cell transplantation HSCTperformed as soon as possible with the best matched HLA donor. Antenatal diagnosis Prenatal diagnosis is feasible in male fetuses when the causal mutation in the family is known. WAS usually manifests in infancy but onset may also occur during the neonatal period. Journal of Leukocyte Biology. The incidence of WAS has been estimated at less than 1 inlive births.

Differential diagnosis Main differential diagnosis is acute or chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenia ITP or platelet alloimmunization in neonates. Main differential diagnosis is acute or chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenia ITP or platelet alloimmunization in neonates. WAS occurs most often in males due to its X-linked recessive pattern of inheritance, affecting between 1 and 10 males per million. The New England Journal of Medicine.

Enermedad Cavernous venous malformation. The diagnosis is made on the basis of clinical parameters, the peripheral blood smearand low immunoglobulin levels. As WAS is primarily a disorder of the blood-forming tissues, a hematopoietic stem cell transplant, aldgich through a umbilical cord blood or bone marrow transplant offers the only current hope of cure.


The majority of children with WAS develop at least one autoimmune disorderand cancers mainly lymphoma and leukemia develop in up to a third of patients.

For patients with frequent infections, intravenous immunoglobulins IVIG can be given to boost the immune system.

In most cases the first clinical features are hemorrhagic manifestations with petechiae, bruising, purpura, epistaxis, oral bleeding, bloody diarrhea and intracranial bleeding.

It contains amino acids and is mainly expressed in hematopoietic cells the cells enfermedaf the bone marrow that develop into blood cells.

Treatments that wiekott weaken the immune system steroids, splenectomy, immunosuppressive agents should be used with the highest caution by trained medical staff. For severely low platelet counts, patients may require platelet transfusions or removal of the spleen.

No geographical factor is present. A protective helmet can protect children from bleeding into the brain which could result from head injuries. Wiskott—Aldrich syndrome has an X-linked recessive pattern of inheritance.
