"Finnish PIDDs- unexpected autoinflammation in unexpected places"

Finns, a genetically-isolated population do to historical bottleneck events, carry relatively little genomic variation and enrichment of autosomal recessive “Finnish Disease Heritage” (FDH) genes. Some FDH PIDDs display features of inflammasome-mediated autoinflammation, potentially offering new therapeutic targets. Within CVID phenotype - also enriched in Finns - AD NFKB1 mutations cause autoinflammatory features that suggest long sought immunopathogenetic mechanisms of more common inflammatory diseases. A novel noncanonical inflammasomopathy “C/EBPε-associated autoinflammation and immune impairment of neutrophils” (CAIN) raises further interesting questionsFinns, a genetically-isolated population do to historical bottleneck events, carry relatively little genomic variation and enrichment of autosomal recessive “Finnish Disease Heritage” (FDH) genes.
