Clinical Information

  • SEVERE COMBINED IMMUNODEFICIENCY-. group of rare congenital disorders characterized by impairment of both humoral and cell mediated immunity leukopenia and low or absent antibody levels. it is inherited as an x linked or autosomal recessive defect. mutations occurring in many different genes cause human severe combined immunodeficiency scid.
  • X LINKED COMBINED IMMUNODEFICIENCY DISEASES-. forms of combined immunodeficiency caused by mutations in the gene for interleukin receptor common gamma subunit. both severe and non severe subtypes of the disease have been identified.

Immune System and Disorders

Your immune system is a complex network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to defend against germs. It helps your body to recognize these "foreign" invaders. Then its job is to keep them out, or if it can't, to find and destroy them.

If your immune system cannot do its job, the results can be serious. Disorders of the immune system include

  • Allergy and asthma - immune responses to substances that are usually not harmful
  • Immune deficiency diseases - disorders in which the immune system is missing one or more of its parts
  • Autoimmune diseases - diseases causing your immune system to attack your own body's cells and tissues by mistake
