Genetic analysis of the family of an individual suffering from what appeared to be secondary thrombocytopenic purpura indictated that: 1. Sixteen of 40 male infants died. 2. Ten of these, including the proband, were known to have suffered from draining ears, eczematoid dermatitis and bloody diarrhea. 3. The pattern of deaths agrees with the assumption that a sex-linked recessive gene is responsible for the primary deviation which leads to the death of these infants. 
Aldrich's Syndrome: Familial Thrombocytopenia, Eczema and Infection
TLDR
Two cases in an English family which also seems to carry the abnormal gene are reported, one has died and the other is still alive, and it seems quite definite that in the family described by Aldrich the condition is genetically determined in this way.
THROMBOCYTOPENIA INHERITED AS AN AUTOSOMAL DOMINANT TRAIT.
TLDR
This report summarizes information obtained on four generations of a kindred afflicted with a mild hemorrhagic diathesis, and the thrombocytopenia appears to be inherited as an autosomal dominant trait.
Wiskott–Aldrich syndrome with partial response to transfer factor
TLDR
Treatment with transfer factor has resulted in a rise in the platelet count and improvement in the bleeding tendency in Wiskott–Aldrich syndrome, but this improvement has been accompanied by exacerbations of the cutaneous lesions.
The Wiskott‐Aldrich Syndrome
TLDR
For some patients with this often lethal disease, there is now hope of cure, although the underlying biochemical or immunologic defect remains unknown.
adicular cyst in a patient with untreated Wiskott – Aldrich syndrome : A case eport
TLDR
A 14-year-old boy, diagnosed with WAS but never treated, presented with symptoms of heart and renal failure and his right first molar showed a cyst-like image on dental X-ray.
Identification of a novel WAS mutation in a South African patient presenting with atypical Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome: a case report
TLDR
A three-year-old HIV negative boy presents with recurrent infections, skin rashes, features of autoimmunity and atopy, and Whole exome sequencing identified c.
Primary malignant reticulosis of the brain in Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome. Report of a case.
TLDR
The purpose of this report is to record an example of this syndrome with malignant reticulosis limited to the central nervous system.
Two cases of wiskott–Aldrich syndrome in neonates due to gene mutations
TLDR
This work presents two cases of WAS in neonates with WAS gene mutations and shows that early genetic diagnosis can help to the treatment and prevention of this disease.
A Family of Hereditary Thrombocytopenic Purpura
TLDR
The results suggest that the thrombocytopenia in this family is related to an immunological mechanism.
Atypical Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome in a girl.
TLDR
There is an autosomal recessive disorder that is very similar to classic WAS, and Cytogenetic studies and X chromosome inactivation analysis showed that both of her X chromosomes could function as the active X.
