IFN-gamma is critical in the immune response to mycobacterial infections, and deficits in IFN-gamma production and response have been associated with disseminated nontuberculous mycobacterial infections. Mutations in the IFN-gamma receptor ligand-binding chain (IFNgammaR1) have been shown to confer susceptibility to severe infection with nontuberculous mycobacteria. However, mutations in the IFN-gamma receptor signal-transducing chain (IFNgammaR2) have not been described. We describe a child… CONTINUE READING
