Ayurvedic Treatment For Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome (ALPS)


Autoimmune disorders occur when the immune system itself attacks the body's tissues and organs. Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system targets blood cells, kidneys, liver, spleen, eyes, skin, and other body organs. Normally autoimmune disorders occur several years later in life. The genes are inherited in a child and symptoms arise in early childhood. People with Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome have a normal lifespan and have a risk of developing lymphoma (cancer of immune cells). In this article we will discuss various causes and symptoms of Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome, also we will discuss how we can manage this syndrome with Ayurveda.

Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome is characterized by abnormally enlarged lymph nodes due to which the body cannot regulate the number of immune system cells properly. It is linked to the failure of the apoptotic mechanism to maintain lymphocyte homeostasis. Defects in FAS-mediated apoptosis cause an excess accumulation of autoreactive T cells. The abnormal accumulation of these cells causes autoimmune disorders and associated dysfunction. Most cases of Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome involve genetic mutation (heterozygous mutations) in the lymphocyte surface protein FaS, which impairs the apoptotic pathway. Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome symptoms can be very similar to autoimmune hemolytic anemia, neutropenia, and other infectious diseases due to weak immunity.


According to Ayurveda, inherited disorders are due to the Beej dushti. Beej dushti varies according to the individual prakriti. The beej dushti can lead to Ojas kshay (weak immunity). The weak immune system cannot fight against infections penetrating the body thus, it will also lead to Rakt dushti (blood/lymph infections). These all factors together aggravate the Rakt and Pitta dosha of the body. The weak immune system cannot cope with certain body changes and undergo destruction to itself and other body organs.


The causes of Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome could be –

  • Genetic mutations (Abnormal mutations in Fas gene)
  • Certain infections lead to autoimmune disorders


The main symptoms of Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome are-

  • Enlarged lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy) mainly in,
  • Neck region
  • Armpits
  • Groin region
  • Enlarged spleen (splenomegaly)
  • Enlarged liver (hepatomegaly)
  • Fatigue
  • Nosebleeds
  • Eye lesions
  • Uveitis
  • Neutropenia
  • Kidney dysfunctions (glomerulonephritis)
  • Liver dysfunctions
  • Urticaria
  • Low blood count

The symptoms have different patterns in every individual.


Various diagnostic methods used in the diagnosis of Hypercoagulability are-

  • The diagnosis of Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome is done through clinical findings, genetic mutation identification, and lab tests. Whereas, no single laboratory finding is diagnostic of Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome.
  • In chronic lymphadenopathies, certain image tests are recommended to rule out the extent of inflammation-
    1. CT scan
    2. MRI scan 
    3. Complete blood count
    4. Biopsy
    5. Double negative T cells


Symptoms of Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome patient can be controlled by-

  • Immunosuppressive medications
  • Anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Antibiotics
  • Blood transfusion
  • Bone marrow transplant
  • Corticosteroids 
  • Surgery – Splenectomy

Splenectomy is the major cause of mortality in various organs of the body in patients with Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome. Thus, arresting the progression of the syndrome at its early stages is mandatory to control further damage that may need surgical management. We can control these early symptoms successfully with ayurvedic medications.
