Summaries for Immunodeficiency, X-Linked, with Hyper-Igm

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 hyper igm syndrome is a type of primary immunodeficiency syndrome. primary immunodeficiency occurs when part of a person’s immune system is missing or does not work correctly. the bodies of people with primary immunodeficiency can’t get rid of germs or protect themselves from new germs as well as they should. primary immunodeficiencies are inherited, meaning they are passed down from parents to children.hyper igm syndromes are characterized by normal or elevated serum immunoglobulin m levels with absence of immunoglobulin g, a, and e. immunoglobulins are proteins found in the blood. hyper igm results in a susceptibility to bacterial infections and sometimes opportunistic infections. there are five different types of hyper igm syndromes (types 1-5). the types are distinguished by the location of the genemutation involved. last updated: 8/1/2013

MalaCards based summary : Immunodeficiency, X-Linked, with Hyper-Igm, also known as higm1, is related to ectodermal dysplasia, hypohidrotic, with immune deficiency and cd40 ligand deficiency, and has symptoms including neutropenia, diarrhea and hepatomegaly. An important gene associated with Immunodeficiency, X-Linked, with Hyper-Igm is CD40LG (CD40 Ligand), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Allograft rejection and Immune response Fc epsilon RI pathway. The drugs Antibodies and gamma-Globulins have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include b cells, liver and lymph node, and related phenotypes are hematopoietic system and cellular

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 71 X-linked immunodeficiency with hyper-IgM 1: Immunoglobulin isotype switch defect characterized by elevated concentrations of serum IgM and decreased amounts of all other isotypes. Affected males present at an early age (usually within the first year of life) recurrent bacterial and opportunistic infections, including Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and intractable diarrhea due to cryptosporidium infection. Despite substitution treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin, the overall prognosis is rather poor, with a death rate of about 10% before adolescence.

OMIM : 54
HIGM is a rare immunodeficiency characterized by normal or elevated serum IgM levels associated with markedly decreased IgG, IgA, and IgE, resulting in a profound susceptibility to bacterial infections and an increased susceptibility to opportunistic infections. Patients with X-linked HIGM also tend to have neutropenia, as well as a high rate of gastrointestinal and central nervous system infections, often resulting in severe liver disease and/or neurodegeneration (summary by Levy et al., 1997).
