Summaries for Felty Syndrome

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 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.

MalaCards based summary : Felty Syndrome, also known as felty's syndrome, is related to neutropenia and nodular regenerative hyperplasia. An important gene associated with Felty Syndrome is C4A (Complement C4A (Rodgers Blood Group)), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Innate Immune System and PEDF Induced Signaling. The drugs Cyclophosphamide and Lenograstim have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, liver and lymph node, and related phenotypes are chronic otitis media and arthritis

Disease Ontology : 12 A syndrome that results in rheumatoid arthritis, splenomegaly and neutropenia.
