Synopsis

Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome is an X-linked recessive disease beginning in the first months of life. Affecting males almost exclusively, it manifests as persistent atopic dermatitis, increased susceptibility to infections, and thrombocytopenic purpura, ecchymoses, petechiae and bloody diarrhea. Viral (warts, herpes and molluscum) and bacterial infections occur with frequency. Typically, the disorder causes death by age 6 if untreated by bone marrow transplant and has been associated with the development of lymphoreticular malignancies and leukemia.

Females may have the syndrome due to nonrandom X-chromosome inactivation.

For more information, see OMIM.
