Abstract
Heterozygous STAT1 gain-of-function (GOF) mutations result in a combined form of immunodeficiency which is the most common genetic cause of chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis (CMC). We present a pedigree with a GOF mutation in STAT1, manifesting with chronic demodicosis in the form of a facial papulopustular eruption, blepharitis, and chalazion. So far, demodicosis has been described in only one family with STAT1-GOF mutation. We suggest that chronic demodicosis is an under-recognized feature of the immune dysregulation disorder caused by STAT1 gain-of-function mutations.
