It has been described in a few unrelated male patients born to mothers with mild incontinentia pigmenti.
The first two reported children died before three years of age from multiple infections with Gram-positive cocci, Gram-negative bacilli, mycobacteria, and fungi.
The syndrome is classified as a X-linked osteopetrosis and is caused by mutations in the IKBKG (NEMO) gene (Xq28).
