  • Primary immunodeficiency

    Disease pathophysiology:

    Each individual has his or her own blueprint, a map made up of millions of bits of information called genes. Sometimes there are malfunctions in this map. When it fails to produce a functioning immune system the disease resulting is called a primary immune deficiency (PI). Sometimes there may be a history of such a malfunction in the family, but often there is not.

    Disease treatment:

    Antiviral drugs are given at the first sign of infection if people have an immunodeficiency disorder that increases the risk of viral infections (such as immunodeficiency due to a T-cell abnormality). These drugs include amantadine for influenza and acyclovir for herpes or chickenpox. Transplantation of thymus tissue is sometimes helpful. Gene therapy for a few congenital immunodeficiency disorders has been successful.
