Defects in LYST are the cause of Chediak-Higashi syndrome (CHS) [MIM:214500]. CHS is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by hypopigmentation, severe immunologic deficiency, a bleeding tendency, neurologic abnormalities, abnormal intracellular transport to and from the lysosome, and giant inclusion bodies in a variety of cell types. Most patients die at an early age unless they receive an allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (SCT).
