Blau syndrome

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Blau syndrome is an autosomal dominant disease which characteristically results in a granulomatous rash, arthritis, and uveitis. Blau syndrome was first described in 1985 in two separate reports. Although the description by Jabs and colleagues appeared first, the eponym, Blau, is widely applied to this syndrome. Many prefer the term, pediatric granulomatous arthritis and uveitis to the name, Blau [15].
