Immune System Disorders Signs & Symptoms

Disorders of the immune system may result from either a genetic abnormality (primary immune deficiency disorders or PIDD) or from infections such as HIV or treatments with medications that suppress the immune system (secondary immune deficiencies).  Children or adolescents with immune deficiencies may have:
• Recurrent, unusual or difficult to treat infections

• Poor growth or loss of weight

• Recurrent pneumonia, ear infections or sinusitis

• Multiple courses of antibiotics or IV antibiotics necessary to clear infections

• Recurrent deep abscesses of the organs or skin

• A family history of PIDD
• Swollen lymph glands or an enlarged spleen

• Autoimmune disease
Children with any of the above signs or symptoms should be evaluated for an immune deficiency disorder.
