ABSTRACT
Patients with inherited defects in the interleukin-12 (IL-12)-dependent, 'high-output' interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) pathway exhibit selective susceptibility to poorly pathogenic mycobacterial and salmonella infections. This review summarises the extended clinical spectrum seen in this group of patients and indicates a strategy for the identification of putative defects in the type 1 cytokine pathway.
