Usually, hypomorphic mutations in the WAS gene can lead to an attenuated form of WAS called X-linked thrombocytopenia with normal platelets XLTT; see this termthat is characterized by mild to moderate thrombocytopenia and eczema and a lower risk of autoimmunity and malignancy, but usually showing no immunodeficiency.
