What is immunodeficiency syndrome?

This is a group of disorders affecting the immune system, reducing the body's ability to defend itself from infections and other diseases. A person can be born with such a condition (congenital) or acquire it (acquired). The severity and impact on the immune system can vary widely depending on the cause. Congenital conditions are usually due to inherited gene mutations, while acquired conditions can be caused by drugs, infections, long-term conditions and treatments, or other environmental factors.

Symptoms of immunodeficiency syndrome

  • Fever of at least 100.4°F / 38°C that continues for 7 or more days

  • Pain across the entire body

  • Fever

  • Repeated episodes of fever above 100.4°F / 38°C

  • Headache

  • Lumps under the skin

  • Swollen lymph nodes, usually small swellings at the neck, armpits, groin and behind the ears

  • Muscle pain

Questions your doctor may ask to check for immunodeficiency syndrome

  • Do you have a fever of 100.4°F / 38°C or higher for more than 7 days?

  • Do you have body-wide pain?

  • Do you have a fever?

  • Have you had recurring fevers of 100.4°F / 38°C or higher?

  • Do you have headaches or a heavy feeling in your head?

Treatment for immunodeficiency syndrome

Treatment varies depending on the cause and involves preventing infection where possible, treating infections quickly, supplementing or strengthening the immune system, and treating the underlying cause if possible. In certain cases, a bone marrow transplant may be performed to restore the body's ability to produce healthy immune cells.
