In the recent years, multiple monogenic diseases have been described that cause auto-inflammatory and/or auto-immune diseases in association or not with vulnerability to microorganisms i.e, classic primary immunodeficiencies. I would herein review some of the genetic defects affecting checkpoints of reactivity to self, notably of the FAS apoptotic pathway that is providing a model to discuss the role of somatic mutations in the generation of auto-immune disorders. Early onset Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) can also exhibit mendelian inheritance. XIAP, a molecule downstream of the NOD2 signaling pathway, when deficient can trigger severe IBD in humans and, is, together with chronic granulomatous and deficiencies in the IL-10 pathway, the strongest genetic risk factor for human IBD
