Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome - Disease Requiring Early Transplantation of Hemopoietic Stem Cells

Publication at First Faculty of Medicine |


The problem of necessary correct and early establishment of diagnosis is documented on case histories of 6 patients handed over to our workplace and indicated to allogenic transplantation of hemopoietic stem cells (SCT) in the years 1996-2007. SCT is presently the only possibility to cure up WAS and the successfulness is markedly dependent on early establishment of diagnosis and efficient prophylaxis and directed therapy of infectious complications.
