Job's syndrome
Thought to be due to a defect in neutrophil chemotaxis which predisposes to infection by staphylococci, often without the normal signs of inflammation ("cold abscesses"). At one time all patients described were female, with red hair, and elevated plasma IgE levels, but this is no longer the case.
