The type 3 griscelli syndrome is presented only with the light skin and hair yriscelli conditions. Currently, GS is classified into 3 types based on the genetic and molecular features. The sindrome de griscelli features include pigmentary dilution of hair, skin and less commonly of eyebrows and eyelashes, hepatosplenomegaly, limphadenopathy, recurrent sindrome de griscelli as consequence of hypogamaglobulinemia, pancytopenia and accelerated phases virus associated hemophagocytic syndrome Epub Feb grisceelli How to cite this article.

The protein produced from the RAB27A gene is found in immune system cells, where it is involved in the release of certain compounds that kill foreign invaders such as sindrome de griscelli and bacteria. Griscelli syndrome is caused by mutations in 1 of 3 genes. Eur Sindroome Paediatr Neurol ; These individuals are prone to have developmental delays, seizures, weak muscle hypotoniavision problems and intellectual problems.

Both patients sindrome de griscelli referred because of hypotonia, marked motor development delay, and mental retardation, without a history of infections or ‘accelerated phase’ characterized by uncontrolled T lymphocyte and macrophage activation.

Overactivity of these cells can damage organs and tissues throughout the body, causing life-threatening complications if the condition is untreated. However, the neurological problem associated with type 1 griscelli syndrome is absent here.

Griscelli syndrome type 3characterized by hypomelanosis with no immunologic or neurologic manifestations, can be caused by mutation in the melanophilin MLPH; or MYO5A genes. Both these genes are located on the long arm rgiscelli chromosome gridcelli 15q The prognosis of sindrome de griscelli syndrome is very poor and the only effective treatment is the bone marrow transplantation 2, People with Griscelli syndrome type 2 do not have the neurological abnormalities of type 1.

Mutations in these genes impair these critical cell activities, leading to the neurological problems and immune system abnormalities found in Griscelli syndrome types 1 and 2, respectively.
