Cystic fibrosis (CF) conductance transmembrane regulator functions as a chloride (Cl−) channel in multiple organs, including the lungs. More than 1,800 disease-associated mutations have been identified, which can be divided into six classes. In patients with CF due to class III gating mutations, ivacaftor produces significant improvement in lung function, weight, reduction in sweat chloride level, and pulmonary exacerbations by enhancing the probability of chloride channel opening (gating). Although the benefit of ivacaftor in CF due to gating mutations is established, its potential role in patients with CF due to class IV conductance mutations is emerging. We report 6 months’ prospective stability of lung function, improved BMI, reduced pulmonary exacerbations, and reduction in sweat chloride level in a patient with severe CF and the class IV R117H mutation. High-resolution CT scan also improved, thus highlighting the potential usefulness of ivacaftor in patients with severe CF due to class IV mutations.
