Autoimmunity, and Alopecia
Diseases related with Autoimmunity and Alopecia
In the following list you will find some of the most common rare diseases related to Autoimmunity and Alopecia that can help you solving undiagnosed cases.
Generalized vitiligo is an autoimmune disease characterized by melanocyte loss, which results in patchy depigmentation of skin and hair, and is associated with an elevated risk of other autoimmune diseases. It is a genetically complex disorder involving multiple susceptibility genes and unknown environmental triggers. Patients with generalized vitiligo have elevated frequencies of other autoimmune diseases, suggesting that these diseases involve shared genetic components (summary by Jin et al., 2010).
VITILIGO-ASSOCIATED MULTIPLE AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE SUSCEPTIBILITY 1; VAMAS1 Is also known as vtlg|vitiligo|slev1|systemic lupus erythematosus, vitiligo-relatedRelated symptoms:

TCR-alpha-beta-positive T-cell deficiency is a rare, hereditary primary immunodeficiency characterized by recurrent respiratory tract infection, otitis media, candidiasis, diarrhea, as well as various signs and symptoms of immune dysregulation (hypereosinophilia, eczema, vitiligo, alopecia areata, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, pityriasis rubra pilaris). Failure to thrive, moderate lymphadenopathy and hepatomegaly have also been reported.
TCR-ALPHA-BETA-POSITIVE T-CELL DEFICIENCY Is also known as tcr-alpha/beta deficiency|tcr-alpha-beta+ t-cell deficiency|imd7|immunodeficiency 7Related symptoms:
- Failure to thrive
- Recurrent infections

Common variable immunodeficiency-12 is an autosomal dominant primary immunodeficiency characterized by recurrent infections, mainly respiratory, associated with hypogammaglobulinemia. The disorder shows a highly variable age at onset and highly variable disease severity, even within the same family. Some patients have features of autoimmunity (summary by Fliegauf et al., 2015).For a general description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of common variable immunodeficiency, see CVID1 (OMIM ).

Low match IMMUNODEFICIENCY DUE TO CD25 DEFICIENCY
Immunodeficiency due to CD25 deficiency is a rare, genetic, primary immunodeficiency due to a defect in adaptive immunity disorder characterized by severe immunodeficiency, presenting with profound susceptibility to viral, fungal and bacterial infections due to impaired CD25-mediated T-regulatory cell function, in association with severe autoimmune disease, such as alopecia universalis, erythrodermia, and autoimmune thyroiditis and enteropathy.

Common variable immunodeficiency-10 is an autosomal dominant primary immunodeficiency characterized by childhood-onset of recurrent infections, hypogammaglobulinemia, and decreased numbers of memory and marginal zone B cells. Some patients may develop autoimmune features and have circulating autoantibodies. An unusual feature is central adrenal insufficiency (summary by Chen et al., 2013).For a general description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of common variable immunodeficiency, see CVID1 (OMIM ).

Low match CRONKHITE-CANADA SYNDROME
Cronkhite-Canada syndrome (CCS) is a rare gastrointestinal (GI) polyposis syndrome characterized by the association of non-hereditary GI polyposis with the cutaneous triad of alopecia, nail changes and hyperpigmentation.
CRONKHITE-CANADA SYNDROME Is also known as gastrointestinal polyposis-skin pigmentation-alopecia-fingernail changes syndrome|gastrointestinal polyposis-ectodermal changes syndrome|cronkhite-canada syndromeRelated symptoms:
- Muscle weakness

Low match SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a complex autoimmune disease characterized by production of autoantibodies against nuclear, cytoplasmic, and cell surface molecules that transcend organ-specific boundaries. Tissue deposition of antibodies or immune complexes induces inflammation and subsequent injury of multiple organs and finally results in clinical manifestations of SLE, including glomerulonephritis, dermatitis, thrombosis, vasculitis, seizures, and arthritis. Evidence strongly suggests the involvement of genetic components in SLE susceptibility (summary by Oishi et al., 2008).
SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS Is also known as disseminated lupus erythematosus|sleRelated symptoms:
- Short stature
- Cognitive impairment

Deficiency in anterior pituitary function-variable immunodeficiency syndrome is a rare, genetic endocrine disease characterized by the association of common variable immunodeficiency, manifesting with hypogammaglobulinemia and recurrent or severe childhood-onset sinopulmonary infections, followed, possibly many years later, by symptomatic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) deficiency resulting from anterior pituitary hormone deficiency.
