ABSTRACT
Early bone marrow transplant is now standard treatment for infants with severe immunodeficiencies such as Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome (WAS), but results in older children and adults are poor. Non-myeloablative transplant has shown promise in the treatment of older children, who are likely to have active infections and organ damage. We describe a non-myeloablative transplant of a 26-year-old man with WAS, undertaken because of severe infections and vasculitis. Partial engraftment and immunorestoration were achieved. The patient is well 1 year post transplantation.
