NIH Rare Diseases:43 Irak-4 deficiency is a condition that affects the immune system (primary immunodeficiency). it causes recurring severe infections by a type of bacteria called pyogenic bacteria. individuals with irak-4 deficiency seem to be particularly susceptible to infections caused by bacteria called streptococcus pneumoniae. the deficiency is caused by mutations in the irak4 gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. treatment may include intravenous immunoglobulin therapy (ivig), taking antibiotics before an infection develops, and vaccines. althought the infections can be life-threatening, they tend to occur less often as a person gets older. last updated: 9/20/2013

MalaCards: Irak-4 Deficiency, also known as irak4 deficiency, is related to pericarditis and ipex syndrome, and has symptoms including anomalies of the lymphatic system, immunodeficiency/increased susceptibility to infections/recurrent infections and polynuclear cells/neutrophils anomalies/neutropenia. An important gene associated with Irak-4 Deficiency is IRAK4 (interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase 4), and among its related pathways are Toll-like receptor signaling pathway and NF-KappaB Family Pathway. The compound serine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder.

Genetics Home Reference:21 IRAK-4 deficiency is an inherited disorder of the immune system (primary immunodeficiency). This immunodeficiency leads to recurrent infections by a subset of bacteria known as pyogenic bacteria but not by other infectious agents. (Infection with pyogenic bacteria causes the production of pus.) The most common infections in IRAK-4 deficiency are caused by the Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria. Most people with this condition have their first bacterial infection before age 2, and the infections can be life-threatening in infancy and childhood. Infections become less frequent with age.
