Wiskott Aldrich syndrome (WAS) is a disease with immunological deficiency and reduced ability to form blood clots. Signs and symptoms include easy bruising. Wiskott Aldrich syndrome (WAS) is inherited in an X-linked recessive manner. A condition is X-linked if the responsible gene is located on the X chromosome. My husband’s grandmother had three children. Two of her sons with Wiskott Aldrich syndrome (WAS) died at ages 7 and 3. My husband’s father did not have it.

Agonists of the thrombopoietin receptors such as romiplostim and eltrombopag can be used to increase the platelet count in severe refractory thrombocytopenia cases that are awaiting HSCT or gene therapy.

Only comments seeking to improve the quality and accuracy of information on the Orphanet website are accepted. Wiskoty keratosiskeratodermahyperkeratosis: Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome WAS is a primary immunodeficiency disease characterized by microthrombocytopenia, eczema, infections and an increased risk for autoimmune manifestations and malignancies.


Management and treatment The only curative treatment to date is hematopoietic stem cell transplantation HSCTperformed as soon as possible with the best matched HLA donor. Alport syndrome Dent’s disease X-linked nephrogenic diabetes insipidus. Purine nucleoside phosphorylase deficiency. The rare disorder X-linked neutropenia has also been linked to a specific subset of WAS mutations.

Some de novo mutations might also occur. The Journal of Experimental Medicine. Haemophilia A Haemophilia B X-linked sideroblastic anemia. Journal of Leukocyte Biology. Diagnostic methods Diagnosis is based on family history, physical examination and laboratory investigations that reveal severe thrombocytopenia with reduced platelet size with a usually normal number of megakaryocytes, as well as altered antibody production mainly antipolysaccharidic antibodies.

Usually, hypomorphic mutations in the WAS gene can lead to an attenuated form of Aldrivh called X-linked thrombocytopenia with normal platelets XLTT; see this termthat is characterized by mild to moderate thrombocytopenia and eczema and a lower risk of autoimmunity and malignancy, but usually showing no immunodeficiency.

Studies of correcting Wiskott—Aldrich syndrome with gene therapy using a lentivirus have begun. Alleles that produce no or truncated protein have more qiskott effects than missense mutations. WAS is associated with mutations in a gene on the short arm of the X chromosome Xp Freckles lentigo melasma nevus melanoma.


The incidence of WAS has been estimated at less than 1 inlive births.

Acute or chronic eczema is the second characteristic finding of WAS. D ICD – The only curative treatment to date is hematopoietic stem cell transplantation HSCTperformed as soon as possible with the best matched HLA donor.
