Genetic conditions are increasingly recognised as a cause of multisystem diseases in children. We report a 6-year-old boy with hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, immunodeficiency, osteopetrosis and lymphoedema, associated with a novel mutation in the NF-κβ essential modulator (NEMO) gene. He is the longest surviving of three reported boys with these clinical features. Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, a congenital disorder of teeth, hair and eccrine sweat glands is most commonly inherited as an X-linked recessive trait. Associated immunodeficiency (HED-ID) may give rise to serious infections in early life. Mutations in the NEMO gene give rise to a heterogeneous group of disorders, including the X-linked dominant disorder incontinentia pigmenti. This is characterised by typical skin changes leading to linear pigmentary change and variable associated features; in males, prenatal death usually occurs. Our patient, like one if the previous cases and all of their mothers, demonstrates features of incontinentia pigmenti.

A number sign (#) is used with this entry because the phenotype is caused by hypomorphic mutations in NEMO (IKBKG; 300248).
Doffinger et al. (2001) examined 2 unrelated male patients who presented with the novel OL-EDA-ID syndrome. Both were sons of mothers with mild incontinentia pigmenti (308300), and both died of overwhelming multiple infections at 2.5 and 1.5 years of age, respectively. Both had osteopetrosis, lymphedema, and anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia. Immunologic variables in the second patient showed a poor inflammatory response and increases in the levels of blood inflammatory markers with fever either absent or delayed during infection. Blood monocytes and polymorphonuclear cells were normal in number and morphology. The B- and T-cell counts and responses to vaccine protein antigens were normal. Serum titers of antibodies against S. pneumoniae were low, despite proven infection. Serum titers of isohemagglutinins were low. Serum levels of immunoglobulin isotypes were normal for age, with the exception of low to normal IgG levels. Both patients carried an X420W mutation in IKBKG, or NEMO (300248.0002). Different alleles were present at the flanking polymorphic loci in the 2 patients, indicating 2 independent mutational events. Both patients died of overwhelming infectious disease caused by a variety of microorganisms, including gram-positive cocci, gram-negative bacilli, mycobacteria, and fungi. There were impaired cellular responses to TNF-alpha (191160). Doffinger et al. (2001) compared the induction of IFN-gamma (147570) by peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from one of the patients and a control. The patient's PBMC displayed a lower level of IFN-gamma production upon costimulation with IL12 (see 161560) and various concentrations of IL1-beta (147720) or IL18 (600953) than the control PBMC. There were impaired cellular responses to lipopolysaccharide in this patient. The patient also exhibited dissociated cellular responses to CD154 (CD40LG; 300386), suggesting that some but not all CD40 (109535)-mediated signals are NEMO-dependent in both dentritic cells and B cells.

Ectodermal dysplasia with immunodeficiency and lymphedema, but not osteopetrosis, is
associated with a unique NF-kB Essential Modulator (NEMO) mutation.

Lymphedema People - Support Groups
The time has come for families, parents, caregivers to have a support group of their own. Support group for parents, families and caregivers of chilren with lymphedema. Sharing information on coping, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. Sponsored by Lymphedema People.
No matter how you spell it, this is another very little understood and totally frustrating conditions out there. This will be a support group for those suffering with lipedema/lipodema. A place for information, sharing experiences, exploring treatment options and coping.
Come join, be a part of the family!
MEN WITH LYMPHEDEMA
If you are a
man with lymphedema; a man with a loved one with lymphedema who you are
to help and understand come join us and discover what it is to be the
instead of the sufferer of lymphedema.
Support group for parents, patients, children who suffer from all forms of lymphangiectasia. This condition is caused by dilation of the lymphatics. It can affect the intestinal tract, lungs and other critical body areas.
Disorders Support Group @ Yahoo Groups
While we have a number of support groups for lymphedema... there is nothing out there for other lymphatic disorders. Because we have one of the most comprehensive information sites on all lymphatic disorders, I thought perhaps, it is time that one be offered.
Information and support for rare and unusual disorders affecting the lymph system. Includes lymphangiomas, lymphatic malformations, telangiectasia, hennekam's syndrome, distichiasis, Figueroa
syndrome, ptosis syndrome, plus many more. Extensive database of information available through sister site Lymphedema People.
