Summaries for Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis, Familial, 4

OMIM : 53 Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis is a hyperinflammatory disorder clinically diagnosed based on the fulfillment of 5 of 8 criteria, including fever, splenomegaly, bicytopenia, hypertriglyceridemia and/or hypofibrinogenemia, hemophagocytosis, low or absent natural killer (NK) cell activity, hyperferritinemia, and high soluble IL2 receptor levels (IL2R; 147730). The disorder typically presents in infancy or early childhood. Persistent remission is rarely achieved with chemo- or immunotherapy; hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is the only cure (summary by Muller et al., 2014). For a phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (FHL), see 267700. (603552)

MalaCards based summary : Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis, Familial, 4, also known as hplh4, is related to hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis and good syndrome, and has symptoms including fever, seizures and global developmental delay. An important gene associated with Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis, Familial, 4 is STX11 (Syntaxin 11), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Nicotine Pathway (Dopaminergic Neuron), Pharmacodynamics and Deregulation of Rab and Rab Effector Genes in Bladder Cancer. Affiliated tissues include nk cells, bone and lymph node.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 71 Familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis 4: A rare disorder characterized by immune dysregulation with hypercytokinemia, defective function of natural killer cell, and massive infiltration of several organs by activated lymphocytes and macrophages. The clinical features of the disease include fever, hepatosplenomegaly, cytopenia, and less frequently neurological abnormalities ranging from irritability and hypotonia to seizures, cranial nerve deficits and ataxia.

Disease Ontology : 12 A hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis that has material basis in an autosomal recessive mutation of STX11 on chromosome 6q24.2.
