About this section


NIH Rare Diseases:43 Felty's syndrome is a rare, potentially serious disorder that is defined by the presence of three conditions: rheumatoid arthritis (ra), an enlarged spleen (splenomegaly) and a decreased white blood cell count (neutropenia), which causes repeated infections. although some individuals with felty's syndrome are asymptomatic, others can develop serious and life-threatening infections. symptoms of felty's syndrome, in addition to those associated with the three conditions stated above, may include fatigue, fever, weight loss, discoloration of patches of skin, mild hepatomegaly (enlarged liver), lymphadenopathy (swelling of lymph nodes), sjögren syndrome, vasculitis, lower-extremity ulcers, and other findings. the exact cause is unknown, but several risk factors have been proposed, including autoimmunity. a few familial cases of the condition have been reported. treatment typically focuses on controlling the underlying ra; immunosuppressive therapy for ra may improve neutropenia and splenomegaly. last updated: 1/6/2011

MalaCards based summary: Felty's Syndrome, also known as felty syndrome, is related to arthritis and leukemia, and has symptoms including arthritis, limitation of joint mobility and abnormality of neutrophils. An important gene associated with Felty's Syndrome is CSF2 (colony stimulating factor 2 (granulocyte-macrophage)), and among its related pathways are IL-15 Signaling and its Primary Biological Effects in Different Immune Cell Types and Staphylococcus aureus infection. The compounds bmmp and as 101 have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, liver and spleen, and related mouse phenotypes are tumorigenesis and hematopoietic system.

Disease Ontology:10 A syndrome that results in rheumatoid arthritis, splenomegaly and neutropenia.
