Answer

Increased awareness and the early identification of patients with the potentially lethal form of Chédiak-Higashi syndrome (CHS) convey unique therapeutic and prognostic implications that may improve outcomes. With a high degree of clinical suspicion, these patients should be immediately referred to a tertiary care center and treated by multidisciplinary teams including hematologists, pediatricians, dermatologists, biologists, neurologists, clinical immunologists, and social workers.
