This syndrome (also known as Job syndrome) has very variable expression, but children may have recurrent sinus and/or lung infections and skin problems, particularly eczema. The best advice would be for the doctor who made the diagnosis to provide you with all the necessary information and answer all your questions.

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal advice.

Is this realy the only information you can give this mother. Obviously the doctor didn't give her all the information required, that is why she resulted in help from you?
