Hypomorphic function and somatic reversion of DOCK8 cause combined immunodeficiency without hyper IgE
Highlights: Whole exome sequencing identified the underlying defect in a patient with combined immunodeficiency.
A novel compound heterozygous DOCK8 mutation was identified.
Expression of a truncated DOCK8 protein with hypomorphic function was identified.
Somatic reversion of DOCK8 mainly in T cells was identified.
DOCK8 deficiency may present without severe viral infections and increased serum IgE levels.
