Abstract

Hyper IgE syndrome (Job’s syndrome) is a rare multiorgan disease characterized by the triad: elevated serum IgE level, recurrent sinopulmonary infections, most often staphylococcal, and cutaneous cold abscesses starting in infancy. We report 21 years old patient with hyper IgE syndrome, diagnosed at age of 6 years on the basis of hyperimmunoglobulinaemia E and reccurent pulmonary and cutaneous infections. Now he was admitted because of pneumonia complicating with pneumatocele, which could not be resolved despite intravenous antibiotics. Surgical intervention was necessary. The postoperative period was complicated by Staphyloccocus aureus sepsis.
