A Lifelong Progressive Disease

Currently, there is no cure for NOMID, but there are ways to manage the symptoms of it. Children with NOMID and their caregivers need to adjust to the demands of a complex, chronic condition. One that requires ongoing care especially when inflammation is most active.

Some symptoms may be present all the time, especially the hive-like rash and fever that begin at birth or in the weeks after. Infections and physical and mental stresses on the body can trigger flares.

NOMID is more severe than other CAPS. Its symptoms and organ damage progress over time. These can slow the child’s growth and lead to physical and mental disability.

Other Symptoms and Complications

Although there is no cure for NOMID, effective treatment, monitoring, and support are important to help relieve symptoms. However, it is important to note that patients who are not diagnosed early, or cannot control their symptoms while on treatment, are most at risk for harmful complications. Some of the possible areas affected include:

  • Brain and central nervous system
    - Complications may include: learning disabilities and mental deficit

  • Bones, joints, and muscles
    - Complications may include: joint deformities, inability to walk

  • Eyes and ears
    - Complications may lead to: blindness and hearing loss
