The first symptoms of immunoosseous dysplasia were growth retardation and myopia. Nephrotic syndrome was diagnosed at the age of 8 years. Skeletal roentgenograms showed spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia. In the renal biopsy there was nodular accumulations of PAS-positive hyaline material at the base of the granular stalks. There was lymphopenia with decreased CD4 and CD8 subpopulations. The condition of the patient gradually worsened until she died unexpectedly at 10 years with clincal symptoms of encephalitis. Autopsy documented cytomegaloviral pneumonia and advanced mesangioproliferative glomerulonephritis. In the spleen there was PAS-positive hyaline material massively infiltrating the walls of the central arterioles of the splenic follicles. There was marked depletion of lymphocytes in the spleen and in lymphnodes. The differential diagnosis of immunoosseous dysplasia in the framework of spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia is discussed. © 1994 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

On the basis of five cases personally observed and one previously reported, we describe a disorder characterized by skeletal dyspiasia, rapidly progressive nephropathy, episodes of lymphopenia, and pigmentary skin changes. Defects of T-cell function were compatible with an autoimmune process. The disorder is probably of genetic origin and inherited as an autosomal recessive trait.

Immune responses are highly dynamic processes that involve rapid expansion and contraction of immune cell populations, targeted exertion of highly potent effector functions and secretion of soluble mediators that have antimicrobial properties and influence cell functions and interactions. To maintain homeostasis, both innate and adaptive immune responses require tight regulation. Exaggerated inflammatory responses can be the consequence of uncontrolled activation of the immune system and failure...

Primary immune deficiencies are a heterogeneous group of inherited disorders caused by specific gene mutations affecting the immune system and leading to various clinical manifestations, including severe infections, autoimmunity, and malignancies. In this chapter, general considerations on primary immune deficiency as well as the various circumstances in which a primary immune deficiency has to be evoked are described.

Schimke immuno-osseous dysplasia (SIOD) is caused by SMARCAL1 deficiency and characterized by defective T-cell immunity. The immunodeficiency and the role of thymic function in SIOD patients are not clearly understood. We performed thymic evaluations by assessing T-cell receptor (TCR) diversity, rearrangement, and excision circles in family members with different disease severity carrying the same bi-allelic mutation and in a heterozygous carrier. The expression of SMARCAL1 mRNA in a normal thym...

Combined immunodeficiency (SCID) can be isolated and involve the immune system only or associated with abnormalities affecting other organs, mainly the skeletal and neurological systems. We report on sisters, born to consanguineous parents, with CID, facial dysmorphism, developmental delay, optic atrophy, myoclonic seizures, and skeletal anomalies. To the best of our knowledge, this is a hitherto new syndrome with most probably autosomal recessive inheritance and unknown etiology.

Combined immunodeficiencies with associated or syndromic features have a less profound immunophenotype than severe combined immunodeficiencies. Nevertheless, the associated syndromic features can make diagnosis and treatment challenging. Whilst treatment options for severe combined immunodeficiencies are clearly defined (hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or gene therapy), the optimal management of the disorders described in the following chapter has not been clearly delineated in every cas...

We treated a 5-year-old boy, in our hospital in south India, who had a history of recurrent respiratory infections, tuberculosis, and severe varicella infection. He was short in build and a radiological examination revealed evidence of spondylometaphyseal dysplasia. Investigation of the immune system was suggestive of compromised cellular immunity. Immunofluorescence and immunoblot assay for antibodies detected underlying multiple disorders such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), autoimmune ...

Background.Asymptomatic, microscopic hematuria is seen in 8-21% of the general population, has a good prognosis, and is generally not an indication for kidney biopsy. But whether it should preclude kidney donation is unclear.Methods.Of 512 consecutive prospective donors, 14 (2.7%) continued to have

In addition to the classical skeletal dysplasias, there are other multi-system disorders in which osseous abnormalities form a significant syndromic component. Conditions of this type that enter into the radiological differential diagnosis of the skeletal dysplasias are included in this section.

Schimke immuno-osseous dysplasia is a rare autosomal recessive disorder that affects primarily bone, T lymphocytes, kidneys, and skin. The patients have a triangular face, broad nasal bridge, bulbous nose tip, small palpebral fissures, short neck, long upper lip, and low hairline. Dental abnormalities of affected patients have not been discussed in detail. The patient described in this clinical report presented with clinical and radiographic abnormalities that may constitute a diagnostic charact...
