Job syndrome is a genetic (inherited) disease of the immune system. People with this condition tend to have frequent bacterial infections of the lungs (pneumonia). Recurrent skin infections and an inflammatory skin disorder (eczema) are also common in this syndrome. This disease can also affect other parts of the body, including the bones, teeth, and the spine.
