As a young child, the patient had eczema, allergies, and asthma.
At age 19, her symptoms started to get much worse. She developed severe itchy skin inflammation (atopic dermatitis) on her face and entire body. This inflammation improved with cyclosporine, but came back when the medication dose was lowered.
The patient has been found to have very high IgE levels. She also has swollen lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy) that blocked circulation to her legs, a kidney (renal) cyst, arthritis, migraines, vertigo, and medically-induced depression.
Recently the patient was started on duplilmab, which has almost completely cured her symptoms.
