RGD uses the Human Disease Ontology (DO, for disease curation across species. RGD automatically downloads each new release of the ontology on a monthly basis. Some additional terms which are required for RGD's curation purposes but are not currently covered in the official version of DO have been added. As corresponding terms are added to DO, these custom terms are retired and the DO terms substituted in existing annotations and subsequently used for curation.

Accession:DOID:2935 term browser browse the term
Definition:A form of phagocyte bactericidal dysfunction characterized by unusual oculocutaneous albinism, high incidence of lymphoreticular neoplasms, and recurrent pyogenic infections. In many cell types, abnormal lysosomes are present leading to defective pigment distribution and abnormal neutrophil functions. The disease is transmitted by autosomal recessive inheritance and a similar disorder occurs in the beige mouse, the Aleutian mink, and albino Hereford cattle.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: CHS;   Chediak - Steinbrinck anomaly;   Chediak-Steinbrinck-Higashi syndrome;   Chédiak-Higashi syndrome;   neutropenia and hyperlymphocytosis with large granular lymphocytes;   oculocutaneous albinism with leukocyte defect
 primary_id: MESH:D002609
 alt_id: MESH:C531649;   OMIM:214500
 xref: GARD:6035;   ICD10CM:E70.330;   NCI:C2941;   ORDO:167
