Clinical Classification

Clinical Information

  • Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency

    a rare autosomal recessive immunodeficiency disorder caused by deficiency of cd18 expression. it is characterized by defects in neutrophil adhesion and bacterial infections.
  • Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency Type 1|LAD-1|LAD-1 Deficiency|LAD-Type I|LAD1|LFA-I Deficiency|LFA1 Immunodeficiency

    a rare immunodeficiency with an autosomal recessive pattern of inheritance. it is caused by mutation in the itgb2 gene on chromosome 21 which codes for the beta subunit of beta-2 integrin (cd18). the mutation results in significantly reduced or absent expression of cd18 on the surface of leukocytes which impairs their ability to migrate and interact with antigens. initial clinical signs include omphalitis and delayed separation of the umbilical cord. the clinical course is marked by recurrent bacterial and fungal infection without pus formation. in instances where there is < 1% expression of cd18, prognosis is dismal with a high likelihood for life-threatening infection within the first year of life.
  • Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency Type 2|CDGIIc|Congenital Disorder of Glycosylation Type IIc|LAD-Type II|Sialyl-Lewis X Defect

    leukocyte adhesion deficiency, type ii. an inherited disease affecting the metabolism of fucose, which affects the expression of the sialyl lewis x antigen, the fucose-containing ligand for e- and p-selectins, resulting in a deficiency in neutrophil adhesion. syn sialyl-lewis x defect.
  • Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency Type 3|LAD-3|LAD-III

    an autosomal recessive condition caused by mutation(s) in the fermt3 gene, encoding fermitin family homolog 3. it is characterized by a defect in activation of all beta integrins. it manifests clinically as severe infections with marked leukocytosis, accompanied by life-threatening bleeding episodes.

Patient Education

Blood Disorders

Your blood is living tissue made up of liquid and solids. The liquid part, called plasma, is made of water, salts and protein. Over half of your blood is plasma. The solid part of your blood contains red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

Blood disorders affect one or more parts of the blood and prevent your blood from doing its job. They can be acute or chronic. Many blood disorders are inherited. Other causes include other diseases, side effects of medicines, and a lack of certain nutrients in your diet.

Types of blood disorders include:

  • Platelet disorders, excessive clotting, and bleeding problems, which affect how your blood clots
  • Anemia, which happens when your blood does not carry enough oxygen to the rest of your body
  • Cancers of the blood, such as leukemia and myeloma
  • Eosinophilic disorders, which are problems with one type of white blood cell.

[1] Not chronic - A diagnosis code that does not fit the criteria for chronic condition (duration, ongoing medical treatment, and limitations) is considered not chronic. Some codes designated as not chronic are acute conditions. Other diagnosis codes that indicate a possible chronic condition, but for which the duration of the illness is not specified in the code description (i.e., we do not know the condition has lasted 12 months or longer) also are considered not chronic.
