Job (Hyper IgE) Syndrome


Job Syndrome, also known as hyperimmunoglobulinemia E syndrome (HIES), is a primary immunodeficiency syndrome that results from defective neutrophil chemotaxis.

The syndrome is caused by an autosomal dominant mutation in STAT3 (part of the JAK-STAT pathway), which impairs Th17 cells, particularly affecting the recruitment of neutrophils. Presentation includes coarse facies, cold staphylococcal abscesses, retained primary teeth, increased IgE, and dermatologic problems (eczematous papulopustular rash).
