What are the signs and symptoms of hyper IgD syndrome?

Hyper IgD syndrome is characterized by periodic high fevers accompanied by lymphadenopathy, abdominal pain, diarrhea, headache, joint pain, hepatomegaly and/or splenomegaly, and skin lesions.[1][2] Most episodes last several days and occur periodically throughout life.[3] The frequency of episodes and their severity vary greatly from case to case.[3][1] The first attack usually takes place during infancy.[2] Patients may have no symptoms between attacks. However, in some patients, the attacks may be so frequent that the symptoms persist.[1]
