NIH Rare Diseases:47 Chediak-Higashi syndrome is a genetic syndrome that affects the immune system, as well as other parts of the body. Signs and symptoms include a weakened immune system, repeated and persistent infections beginning in infancy and childhood, oculocutaneous albinism, blood clotting problems, and nervous system abnormalities (e.g., weakness, difficulty walking, and seizures). Complications from this syndrome can become life-threatening. It is caused by mutations in the LYST gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion. Last updated: 11/7/2011
MalaCards based summary: Chediak-Higashi Syndrome, also known as chs, is related to attenuated chédiak-higashi syndrome and congenital hypothyroidism, and has symptoms including gingival bleeding, periodontitis and bruising susceptibility. An important gene associated with Chediak-Higashi Syndrome is LYST (Lysosomal Trafficking Regulator), and among its related pathways are wtCFTR and deltaF508 traffic / Late endosome and Lysosome (norm and CF) and Deregulation of Rab and Rab Effector Genes in Bladder Cancer. Affiliated tissues include bone, bone marrow and neutrophil, and related mouse phenotypes are neoplasm and pigmentation.
Disease Ontology:11 An autosomal recessive disease characterized by oculocutaneous albinism, immune deficiency, coagulation deficiency and neuropathy; it is that has material basis in mutations in the CHS1 gene.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:69 Chediak-Higashi syndrome: A rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by hypopigmentation, severe immunologic deficiency, a bleeding tendency, neurologic abnormalities, abnormal intracellular transport to and from the lysosome, and giant inclusion bodies in a variety of cell types. Most patients die at an early age unless they receive an allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (SCT).
Genetics Home Reference:25 Chediak-Higashi syndrome is a condition that affects many parts of the body, particularly the immune system. This disease damages immune system cells, leaving them less able to fight off invaders such as viruses and bacteria. As a result, most people with Chediak-Higashi syndrome have repeated and persistent infections starting in infancy or early childhood. These infections tend to be very serious or life-threatening.
