This study investigated clinical features and causal candidate mutations in Taiwanese patients with the HIES phenotype on referral base over 23 million inhabitants. Patients and Methods Clinical manifestations of the HIES phenotype, severity scoring, immunological functions and candidate genes of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3), tyrosine kinase 2 (TYKZ), and dedicator of cytokineses 8 (DOCK8) were analyzed. Results Between 1985 and 2009, six sporadic and two siblings met HIES criteria (onset age: 2--54 months severity score: 31--65) out of 187 patients with primary immunodeficiencies. Five patients with the autosomal dominant (AD)-HIES phenotype presented as pneumatocoele, bronchiectasis, retained primary teeth, minor trauma fracture, scoliosis, coronary aneurysm, and lymphoma. Three with the autosomal recessive (AR)-HIES phenotype and impaired lymphocyte proliferation function had herpes simplex virus infection, molluscum contagiosum, and cerebral vasculitis. Notably in one patient with the AR-HIES phenotype, unintentional lead component in traditional application herbs for accelerating wound healing deposited in basal ganglia and aggravated involuntary movement relative to cerebral vacculitis. Those with mildly elevated memory T cells and decreased memory B cells trended to develop arteritis. Of five AD-HIES patients, three were mortalities from acute myocardial infarction, Proteus mirabilis, and Staphylococcus aureus sepsis. Only one had de novo novel STAT3 (Gln 469 Arg) mutation with "relative" lower HIES STAT3 score. Conclusions Known genetic defects responsible for the HIES phenotype are not so common in Taiwan. This may infer genetic variations in different ethnicities although selection bias and under-diagnosis for HIES with known genetic defects could be contribution factors.

    Description: We described a 15-year-old girl who presented with persistent fever, bilateral flank pain, and worsening dyspnea. The peripheral blood cell count showed remarkable eosinophilia at the time of admission. Severe pleural effusion with eosinophilic Infiltrations as well as pericardial effusion were noted thereafter. Bone marrow examination disclosed markedly increased eosinophils. Bilateral ectasia of the renal pelvis was found in an ultrasonographic study of the kidneys. Spiking fever and progressive shortness of breath persisted despite treatment with empiric antibiotics for infection. Based on the clinical course and histological findings, a tentative diagnosis of idiopathic HES was made. After treatment with oral prednisolone daily (1 mg/kg/day) for one week, there was a rapid improvement in her clinical condition. She was discharged a few days later and the steroids were withdrawn gradually when she was asymptomatic. The absolute eosinophil count (AEC) was monitored during follow-up. At 3 weeks, the AEC had fallen from 8,060/mm3 to 4,792/mm3 and it further fell to 1,591/mm3 at 5 months, and to 855/mm3 at 8 months during follow-up. There is no evidence of any other organ involvement until now. The clinical manifestations, diagnosis and management of idiopathic HES in children are also reviewed.

    Description: Background:Patients with intractable severe asthma require Longterm inhaled and systemic sorticosteroid treatment. To minimize the adverse effect of steroids, we may choose other immumosuppresive or immunomodulator therapy to sparse the dose of steroids as soon as possible.
