This condition is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner.

LPS-responsive beige-like anchor protein deficiency is a rare genetic condition caused by the absence of LPS-responsive beige-like anchor protein (LRBA).

Signs and symptoms

The presentation of this condition is variable making the diagnosis difficult. The most common features include[1]

  • Immune dysregulation (95%)
  • Organomegaly (86%)
  • Recurrent infections (71%)
  • Hypogammaglobulinemia (57%)
  • Granulomatous lymphocytic interstitial lung disease (38%)

There is also a tendency to develop inflammatory bowel disease.


The LBRA gene is located on the long arm of chromosome 4 (4q31.3).[citation needed]


Depiction of the function of CTLA4 and its regulation by LRBA

LBRA protein interacts with the protein CTLA4. The absence of LBRA increases the turnover of CTLA4 and interferes with vesicle trafficking.[citation needed]


In terms of the diagnosis of this deficiency we find that pathogenic genetic variants in the LRBA gene confirm LPS-responsive beige-like anchor protein deficiency[2]

Differential diagnosis


Along with treatment for infections and other complications several additional treatments have been tried. These include hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, immunoglobulin replacement and immunosuppressive treatment.[1]


This condition was first described in 2012.[3]
