Abstract

The Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) is a rare X-linked immunodeficiency disease with a characteristic clinical phenotype that includes thrombocytopenia with small platelets, eczema, recurrent infections caused by immunodeficiency, and an increased incidence of autoimmune manifestations and malignancies. We present a patient who was diagnosed with WAS in adulthood and was found to have bilateral bronchiectasis. Although recurrent infections are common with Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome the association with bronchiectasis has not been previously reported.
