Leukocyte adhesion deficiency (LAD)

Leukocyte adhesion deficiency (LAD): Introduction

Leukocyte adhesion deficiency (LAD): A rare inherited disorder characterized by abnormal neutrophil functioning which reduces the body's immunity. The abnormal neutrophils are unable to be transported to sites of infection due to their inability to adhere to certain blood vessel components which would normally lead them to the infection site. Infections may be life-threatening as the body is unable to destroy bacteria effectively. There are two subtypes with type I resulting in more infections and a lesser degree of developmental delay. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Leukocyte adhesion deficiency (LAD) is available below.
