Immune Deficiency Syndromes

Also known as: Immune deficiency

Immune Deficiency Syndromes

Immune deficiency involves damage or poor development of the immune system that protects the body from common infections. This may be present at birth due to genetic defects to parts of the immune system. Immune problems can also result from diabetes, infections, cancer treatments or medications.
 
Treatment: Immune deficiency can be treated with medications. For patients with a genetic defect of the immune deficiency, a blood or marrow transplant may be a treatment option, with the potential to provide a new immune system for the patient.
