Wiskott Aldrich syndrome (WAS) is a disease with immunological deficiency and reduced ability to form blood clots. Signs and symptoms include easy bruising. Wiskott Aldrich syndrome (WAS) is inherited in an X-linked recessive manner. A condition is X-linked if the responsible gene is located on the X chromosome. My husband’s grandmother had three children. Two of her sons with Wiskott Aldrich syndrome (WAS) died at ages 7 and 3. My husband’s father did not have it.
