Gene was flagged as requiring further clinical input from the Immunology Test Group, but no additional information was submitted to support the Green rating. In view of a lack of clear evidence the current recommendation is Amber.

This is a relevant phenotype but there is not enough evidence in the literature to date (one case) and there has been no further evidence in terms of unpublished cases other than a Green rating recommendation from the Immunology Specialist Test Group. To remain Amber unless further supporting evidence from the Test Group

Gene rating submitted by Kimberly Gilmour and Austen Worth on behalf of London North GLH for the GMS Immunology specialist test group. As discussed with the GMS Immunology Specialist Test Group during webex call 28th March 2019 and confirmed in follow up email 6th September the Specialist Test Group all agreed there is enough evidence to rate this gene Green.

Comment on publications: Added publication Slade et al. (2013) PMID:2415220. Only one affected (1 family) reported to date in which a 32-year-old woman, born of unrelated parents of English and Scottish origin, with complement factor B deficiency (CFBD; 615561) manifest as recurrent systemic infections with encapsulated bacteria since early childhood, Slade et al. (2013) identified compound heterozygous mutations in the CFB gene: a c.766C-T transition in exon 6, resulting in a gln256-to-ter (Q256X) substitution, and a 4-bp deletion (c.1894_1987delTTTG; 138470.0008) in exon 15, resulting in a frameshift and premature termination (Phe632CysfsTer8). Laboratory studies showed normal immunoglobulins and lymphocytes, but functional ELISA showed that the alternative complement pathway was inactive. The defect was not complemented by factor B-depleted serum, and factor B was undetectable by radial immunodiffusion. The mutations were found by genome sequencing of the CFB gene and segregated with the disorder in the family.

This gene was absent from the original PanelApp PID panel dataset (review April 2018). However it was listed in external expert immunodeficiency diagnostic gene list(s) GOSH or GRID. In this combined PID panel, this gene has been rated as AMBER and needs further curational review to assess pertinence prior to v1.
