Comment on phenotypes: Homozygous factor H deficiency is rare, reported cases with Factor H deficiency classically presents with MPGN or other renal disease.It has also been associated with most inherited cases of HUS. Factor H deficiency has also been associated with increased susceptibility to infection in general (PMID:16499568)

from OMIM : Complement factor H deficiency (CFHD) can manifest as several different phenotypes, including asymptomatic, recurrent bacterial infections, and renal failure. Laboratory features usually include decreased serum levels of factor H, complement component C3 and a decrease in other alternative pathway components, indicating activation of the alternative complement pathway. Homozygotes and heterozygotes may show increased susceptibility to meningococcal infections. In addition, a number of renal diseases have been associated with factor H defect or deficiency, including atypical hemolytic-uremic syndrome (aHUS), membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis type II (MPGN II), and nonspecific hematuria or nephritis.

This gene was present in the original PanelApp PID panel dataset (review in April 2018) rated as Red. The gene is present in the 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.
