  • Disorders of

  • Complement

  • Complement

  • Component deficiencies

  • Complement

    • Inhibitor deficiencies

Disorders of Specific





B & T Cell





B Cell Defects




T Cell Defects

Immunodeficiency diseases

Immunodeficiency Diseases

  • Patient unable to fight off infection

  • Hall marks

    • Repeated infections

    • Opportunistic infections

Immunodeficiency diseases1

Immunodeficiency Diseases

  • Most are defects in T cells or B cells

    • T cells, Macrophage defects = Fungal, Viral, protozoal infections

    • B cells, Complement defects = Bacterial infections

Immunodeficiency diseases2

Immunodeficiency Diseases

  • Congenital

  • Acquired



  • B cell deficiency

  • IgA deficiency

  • DiGeorge’s Syndrome

  • Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID)

B cell deficiency

B Cell deficiency

  • Agammaglobulinemia

  • Hypogammaglobulinemia

Iga deficiency

IgA deficiency

  • Most common immune deficiency disorder

  • Genetic condition

  • Failure of IgA synthesis

  • Patients have repeated, recurrent sinus, lung, GI infections

Digeorge s syndrome

DiGeorge’s Syndrome

  • Thymic hypoplasia

  • Severe decrease in T-cell production & function

  • Defects in face, ears, heart.

Severe combined immunodeficiency

Severe Combined Immunodeficiency

  • Thymus development arrested at ~ 6-8 weeks gestation.

  • Deficiency, defective maturation of stem cells that produce B & T cells.

  • Little to no antibody production.

Disorders of immunity immunodeficiency diseases


  • Two types

    • Autosomal recessive

    • X-linked disease recessive

Disorders of immunity immunodeficiency diseases


  • Recurrent, frequently overwhelming infections

  • Particularly respiratory and gastrointestinal

  • Most die in first few years of life, usually by one year of age

  • Death usually due to opportunistic infection



  • Nutritional

  • Iatrogenic (drugs, radiations)

  • Trauma (prolonged hypoperfusion)

  • Stress

  • Infections (HIV)

  • Malignancies

Immune deficiency therapies

Immune Deficiency Therapies

  • B-cell deficiency : Gamma globulin

  • SCID : Bone marrow transplant, enzyme replacement

  • DiGeorge’s Syndrome : Fetal thymus transplant

  • Gene therapy

Inherited functional disorders

Inherited Functional Disorders

  • Disorders of Granulocyte Function

    • Job’s syndrome – directional motility is impaired – recurrent boils and abscesses

    • Lazy Leukocyte Syndrome – random and directed movement are defective – cells fail to respond to inflammatory stimuli – mild symptoms of low grade fever, recurrent infections (gums, mouth, ears)

    • Chediak-Higashi – abnormal granule release

Inherited functional disorders1

Inherited Functional Disorders

  • Congenital C3 deficiency – inability to ingest microorganisms- repeated severe infections with encapsulated bacteria

  • Chronic Granulomatous Disease – inability to kill catalase positive organisms – recurrent pyogenic infection

  • Leukocyte Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency – similar to CGD Myeloperoxidase Deficiency-benign – slow bacterial killing, but complete

B cell disorders

B Cell Disorders

  • Infantile sex-linked agammaglobulinemia

    Recurrent bacterial infections

    All classes of immunoglobulin are low

    All lymphocytes are T cells

    Treat with antibiotics and gamma globulin

  • Common Variable hypogammaglobulinemia

    One or a combination of immunoglobulins is missing

    Inability of B cells to mature/function as plasma cells

    Excessive production/activity of T suppressor cells

Monocyte macrophage disorders

Monocyte-Macrophage Disorders

  • Mucopolysaccharidoses – deficiencies in specific enzymes to degrade mucopolysaccharides (Hurley syndrome, Hunter syndrome: gargoylism)

  • Lipidoses: lipid storage diseases – macrophages become overloaded with lipids (Gaucher, Niemann-Pick, Tay-Sachs)
