immunocompromised host
Immunocompromised Host
  • Individual who has one or more defects in the body’s natural defense mechanisms which are sufficiently severe to predispose the host to life- threatening infection and high risk of autoimmune diseases, allergy and malignancy
  • Primary - PID, damage to anatomical barriers
  • Secondary - infection, tumor, drug, others
