Hi. I am 16 years old. My Grandma died from Chediak-Higashi syndrome. I know it is an inherited disorder and I fear I might have CHS too. My vision has decreased and I often have respiratory infections. My muscles are weakening. I also have photophobia. Could I have CHS?

Hi. My sister died as a child because of CHS. Her symptoms were nystagmus (jerky eye movements), albinism, photophobia, frequent infections, mental retardation, tremor, and muscle weakness. CHS is a very rare inherited disorder of the immune system, which affects almost every organ in your body. It results in early death. If you have a family history of CHS I recommend you a genetic counseling.
