Introduction

Wiskott-Alrich syndrome is a X-linked immunodeficiency disorder characterized by the triad of the complaints. It is manifested in the form of three major complaints, i.e. Bleeding tendencies, inflammatory condition of the skin causing red patches on the skin and recurrent infections. The cause behind abnormal bleeding tendencies is presence of immature and improperly functioning platelets that usually forms clots and help in arresting bleeding. These microthrombocytes are present in an individual from birth and causes easy bruises on body, blood in stool (mainly bloody diarrhea), recurrent bleeding episodes that may be from nose or other in minor injuries. It can prove to be life threatening if the prolonged bleeding occurs in brain or other major internal organ. These three major ailments make WAS (Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome) a difficult condition to be treated. Males are prone to this syndrome as compared to females.

Abnormally functioning or low functioning of immune system results in repeated infections in the body and inflammatory disorders as well. Changes in the white blood cells that are known to be the defensive cells causes these ailments. Severity of these immune system related ailments may vary and sometimes in mild cases diagnosis can also be delayed due to lack of the confirming signs and symptoms. Lack of immunity increases the susceptibility of an individual to viral, bacterial and fungal infections. Along with the triad of complaints, these people with WAS are prone to develop hemolytic anemia, rheumatoid arthritis and vasculitis. These disorders occur due to abnormal functioning of the immune system and its attack on own body resulting in destruction of cells and tissues. In people having Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, the risk of developing certain type of cancers like lymphoma is increased.

Causes

As it is a X linked gene disorder which occurs due to the abnormal mutation in the certain gene causing abnormalities in many functions of the body. This WAS gene when formed normally produces a protein which is found in all the blood cells. This specific protein is responsible for the transmission of the signals from blood cells surface to the network of fibers which is involved in the formation of structure of the cells and this network is called actin cytoskeleton. This transmission of signal from WAS protein to actin cytoskeleton leads to cell adhesion and in case of white blood cells it helps to develop interaction with foreign bodies that may harm the body. White cells recognize them and destroys but in case of WAS there is absence of this protein and hence missing interaction with these foreign invaders and thus causing infections in the body. This mutation along with causing Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome can also result in severe congenital neutropenia and X linked thrombocytopenia. These all three are together known as WAS related disorders.

Signs and Symptoms

As there occur three main pathological processes, hence the complaints and symptoms also arises as per these pathological changes.

  1. Microthrombocytes- Due to the presence of immature and small platelet cells they are not able to form the blood clots and hence resulting in easy bruising, petechiae, and red spots on the skin which can occur on insignificant reasons. Patient may have repeated episodes of bleeding from nose and blood in stools.
  2. Inflammation on the skin- Abnormal immune processes going on in body causes inflammatory condition in the skin and hence resulting in rashes and patches on the body and other typical signs of eczema.
  3. Low immune protection- Due to changes in white blood cells there occur low immunity or decreased immune response to the foreign body invaders. This causes increased chances of a person to get infections from various bacteria, viruses and fungi. Recurrent ear infections are more common.

Diagnosis

The wiskott-aldrich syndrome is usually diagnosed by Genetic testing in which the abnormal gene is found to be functional. This syndrome can be in both severe and mild and form. Person having the mild form of disease is usually diagnosed late as compared to the severe one. Bone marrow biopsy can also be done to initially to rule out other causes of the similar ailments. However presence of all three triad complaints makes the doctor alert to point towards Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome.

Treatment

The conservative treatment of wiskott-aldrich syndrome is symptoms specific and is done as per the complaints present in the patient. This includes platelets transfusion in case of low platelet, antibiotics in case of infections and anti inflammatory medicines in case of eczema or similar skin ailment. Also WAS patient should never be given live virus vaccines as it can cause infection in such patients hence they should be given non live vaccines.

But as long term intake of such medicines can cause harm to the body and result in other serious ailments so people are looking for alternate methods for treatment. Ayurveda is the science of life originated in India and now is being followed in many countries of the world. In this treatment is based upon the predominant dosha, either it be Pitta, Vata and Kapha. Natural ways of treatment is used in it like medicines prepared from herbs.
