Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome: ALPS is a rare disease that affects both children and adults. ALPS stands for Autoimmune LymphoProliferative (lim-fo-pro-lif'-er-a-tive) Syndrome. Each of these three words helps describe the main features of this condition. The word autoimmune (self-immune) identifies ALPS as a disease of the immune system. The tools used to fight germs turn against our own cells and cause problems.

The word syndrome refers to the many common symptoms shared by ALPS patients.1
