Study of Clinical Features and Genetics of Hyperimmunoglobulin E Recurrent Infection
Natural History, Management, and Genetics of the Hyperimmunoglobulin E Recurrent Infection Syndrome (HIES)

The Hyper IgE Syndromes (HIES) are primary immunodeficiencies resulting in eczema and recurrent skin and lung infections. Autosomal dominant Hyper IgE syndrome (AD-HIES; Job's syndrome) is caused by STAT3 mutations, and is a multisystem disorder with skeletal, vascular, and connective tissue manifestations. Understanding how STAT3 mutations cause these diverse clinical manifestations is critical to our complete understanding of bone metabolism, bronchiectasis, dental maturation, and atherosclerosis. Mutations in DOCK8 cause many cases of autosomalrecessive Hyper IgE syndrome. These individuals suffer from extensive viral infections as well as have a high incidence of malignancy and mortality. The pathogenesis of this disease is being investigated. Therefore, we seek to enroll patients and families with a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of HIES syndrome for extensive phenotypic and genotypic study as well as disease management. Patients will be carefully examined by a multidisciplinary team and followed longitudinally. Through these studies we hope to better characterize the clinical presentation of HIES and to be able to identify further genetic etiologies, as well as understand the pathogenesis of HIES. We seek to enroll 200 patients and 300 relatives.

  • INCLUSION CRITERIA:

Patients must be referred to the NIH with a diagnosis or a suspicion of Job Syndrome. Family members of probands and patients referred for other immune syndromes that demonstrate some the characteristics of Job's syndrome syndrome may also be evaluated under this protocol.

Male and female patients will be accepted.

EXCLUSION CRITERIA:

Pregnant women are excluded only from any procedure or test that may endanger the pregnancy or the fetus due to the risk from radiographic studies, anesthesia, or certain biopsies.

Coronary CT angiography will not be performed on any patient with contraindication to IV contrast media. This includes patients with: 1) creatinine value of greater than 1.3 mg/dl, 2) history of multiple myeloma, 3) use of metformin-containing products less than 24 hours prior to contrast media, and 4) history of significant allergic reaction to CT contrast agents despite the use of premedication.
