Leukocyte adhesion deficiency (LAD) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by absence or dysfunctional CD18 on the surface of leukocytes due to a mutation in ITGB2 gene. The hallmarks of LAD are defects in leukocyte adhesion and marked leukocytosis. It is characterized by recurrent bacterial infections of the skin and mucosal membrane.
