Lay Description

New diseases of the immune system can be discovered by studying the genetic makeup of patients with a strong family history. In addition to providing a diagnosis, genetic studies can suggest better treatments in some cases. We are looking for children with immune mediated symptoms, including immune deficiency, inflammatory symptoms such as fever, and episodes of swelling, with at least one close relative (parent or sibling) who has the same symptom(s) and another who is not affected. Blood samples will be taken and analyzed for genetic differences.
