Novel NLRP12 mutations associated with intestinal amyloidosis in a patient diagnosed with common variable immunodeficiency - DG Cases
Heterozygous mutations in the NLRP12 gene have been found in patients with systemic auto-inflammatory diseases. However, the NLRP12-associated periodic fever syndromes show a wide clinical spectrum, including patients without classical diagnostic symptoms.

Background Anaphylactic reactions during anesthesia and operation are common and life threatening. Follow-up investigation is necessary for avoiding potential re-exposure of the patients to the offending drugs. The purpose of this study was to assess cellular allergen
stimulation test (CAST) as a diagnostic instrument in immunoglobulin E (IgE)- and
non-IgE-mediated anaphylactic reactions.
