What is Hids disease?

What is Hids disease?

Hyperimmunoglobulin D syndrome (HIDS; MIM #260920) is a rare, autosomal-recessive genetic disorder characterized by recurrent febrile episodes typically associated with lymphadenopathy, abdominal pain, and an elevated serum polyclonal immunoglobulin D (IgD) level.

What is hyper IgD?

Hyper IgD syndrome (HIDS) is part of this spectrum and is characterized by episodes or “attacks” of fever associated with other symptoms including joint pain (arthralgia), muscle pain (myalgia), skin rash and abdominal pain. Most episodes last several days and can repeat throughout life.

How do you treat HIDS?

You can take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) during an episode to help deal with pain. These include ibuprofen and naproxen. Your doctor may also prescribe steroids to help with inflammation. You may also need biologic therapy.

What is IgD deficiency?

Background. Immunoglobulin D (IgD) deficiency is a defect of humoral immunity that is characterized by abnormally low serum levels of IgD immunoglobulins. Little is known about the normal function of IgD, and few clinical signs or symptoms are associated with its absence.

What causes Hids?

Hyper-IgD syndrome (HIDS), or HIDS disease, is caused by an inherited autosomal recessive gene mutation of the mevalonate kinase gene (MVK). Most patients have two mutations on the MVK gene, one from each parent to cause HIDS disease symptoms.

What is familial cold urticaria?

General Discussion. Familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome (FCAS), also known as familial cold urticaria, is a rare, inherited inflammatory disorder characterized by intermittent episodes of rash, fever, joint pain and other signs/symptoms of systemic inflammation triggered by exposure to cold.

How do you treat Hids?

What is host based intrusion detection?

A host-based IDS is an intrusion detection system that monitors the computer infrastructure on which it is installed, analyzing traffic and logging malicious behavior. An HIDS gives you deep visibility into what’s happening on your critical security systems.

Where is IgD found?

B lymphocytes
IgD. Immunoglobulin D (IgD) is primarily found on the surface of B lymphocytes where it functions as a receptor for antigen. IgD does not bind complement or cells through the Fc receptor. A small amount of IgD is secreted accounting for about 0.25 per cent of the total serum immunoglobulins (Vladutiu, 2000).

Is cold urticaria inherited?

FCAS shares symptoms, and should not be confused, with acquired cold urticaria, a more common condition mediated by different mechanisms that usually develops later in life and is rarely inherited.

Is cold urticaria rare?

Essential cold urticaria makes up about 1% to 3% of all urticaria cases, and occurs most often among young adults. Familial cold urticaria is rare.
