The Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome is an X-linked hereditary disorder associated with combined immunodeficiency, thrombocytopenia, small platelets, eczema, and increased susceptibility to autoimmune disorders and cancers. It is caused by mutations in the gene (WAS) for the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP). We investigated family members of the patients originally described by Wiskott in 1937 and identified a new frame shift mutation in exon 1 of WAS. This mutation is likely to be the…

TLDR
The case of a boy with Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome is described, with clinical and genetic diagnosis, with a considerable diagnostic delay attributable to an atypical presentation misdiagnosed as immune thrombocytopenia.

TLDR
The case of a boy with Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome is described, with clinical and genetic diagnosis, with a considerable diagnostic delay attributable to an atypical presentation misdiagnosed as immune thrombocytopenia.
Wiskott‐Aldrich syndrome: a comprehensive review
TLDR
The absence of functional WASp leads to a severe clinical phenotype that can result in death if not diagnosed and treated early in life, and the treatment of choice with the best outcome is hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
A novel splice site mutation in WAS gene in patient with Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome and chronic colitis: a case report
TLDR
This study found a novel, splice-site mutation in WAS gene and help consider the genetic counselling more precisely for families with clinical phenotypes of both Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease and may suggest linked pathways between these two diseases.
Wiskott‐Aldrich Syndrome Caused by a New Mutation Associated with Multifocal Dermal Juvenile Xanthogranulomas
TLDR
A boy with Wiskott‐Aldrich syndrome is reported, caused by a new, not previously described mutation associated with multifocal juvenile xanthogranuloma.

Clinical spectrum, pathophysiology and treatment of the Wiskott–Aldrich syndrome
TLDR
Classic WAS, X- linked thrombocytopenia and X-linked neutropenia are caused by WAS gene mutations, each having a distinct pattern of clinical symptoms and disease severity.

TLDR
This review will focus on recent progress in understanding the molecular basis of Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome and its ramifications for the cure of this lethal disease.

Mutations of the Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome Protein (WASP): hotspots, effect on transcription, and translation and phenotype/genotype correlation.
TLDR
By analyzing a large number of patients with WAS/XLT at the molecular level, 5 mutational hotspots in the WASP gene are identified and a strong association between genotype and phenotype is established.
ISOLATION OF A NOVEL GENE MUTATED IN WISKOTT-ALDRICH SYNDROME
TLDR
A major breakthrough is described in the identification of the defective gene in WAS, which is found to be mutated in the four WAS patients studied, and brings the possibility of gene replacement therapy for WAS much closer.
Clinical course of patients with WASP gene mutations.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that WAS protein expression is a useful tool for predicting long-term prognosis for patients with WAS/XLT and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation should be considered, especially for WASP-negative patients, while the patients are young to improve prognosis.
WASP gene mutations in Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome and X-linked thrombocytopenia.
TLDR
The distribution of eight missense mutations provides valuable information on amino acids which are essential for normal protein function, and suggests that sites in the first two exons are hot-spots for mutation.
Structure and function of the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein
TLDR
Progress made in dissecting the functions of the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein has direct implications for understanding of the distinct clinical phenotypes, for making diagnostic and prognostic decisions, and for the selection of therapeutic strategies.
Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome: no strict genotype-phenotype correlations but clustering of missense mutations in the amino-terminal part of the WASP gene product
TLDR
An extended homology search revealed a distant relationship of this stretch to the vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein (VASP), which is involved in the maintenance of cytoarchitecture by interacting with actin-like filaments.

TLDR
Some of the groundwork for recognition of the sex-linked recessive heredity of certain diseases was already long established, but this was not demonstrated for the triad described by Wiskott until 1954, when Robert A. Aldrich published a "Pedigree demonstrating a sex linked recessive condition characterized by draining ears, eczematoid dermatitis and bloody diarrhea".
[The Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome].
TLDR
Individuals with Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome have microthrombocytopenia, which is a decrease in the number and size of blood cell fragments involved in clotting (platelets), which can lead to easy bruising, bloody diarrhea, or episodes of prolonged bleeding following minor trauma.
