Abstract

Omenn Syndrome is a rare combined immunodeficiency syndrome manifested mainly by generalised
erythroderma, alopecia, loss of eyebrow and eye lashes, generalised oedema and metabolic disturbances.
Poor prognosis is reported as it mimics the appearance of severe eczema and immunodeficiency and is under
noticed as there is presence of circulating lymphocytes. Understanding the guidelines of prompt diagnosis
will facilitate early treatment and improve prognosis.
