Description

++

  • Failure of the body to provide defense against bacterial or viral invasion as there is no or insufficient production of antibodies
  • There are 70 to 100 types in approximately six categories
  • Primary immunodeficiency disorders
  • Congenital immunodeficiency diseases
  • B-cell (antibody) deficiencies
  • T-cell deficiencies
  • Combination B- and T-cell deficiencies
  • Defective phagocytes
  • Complement deficiencies
  • Unknown (idiopathic)
  • Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) (bubble boy disease) is considered the most severe form of the disease
    • Chronic infections
    • Frequent infections
    • Multiple body-system involvement
    • Onset often vague with misdiagnosis of underlying disease

++

Essentials of Diagnosis

++

  • Must be made by a physician and confirmed by medical diagnostic testing
  • Warning signs of primary immunodeficiency
    • Eight or more new ear infections within one year
    • Two or more serious sinus infections within one year
    • Two or more months on antibiotics with little effect
    • Two or more pneumonias within one year
    • Failure of an infant to gain weight or grow normally
    • Recurrent, deep skin or organ abscesses
    • Persistent thrush in mouth or elsewhere on skin, after age one
    • Need for intravenous antibiotics to clear infections
    • Two or more deep-seated infections such as sepsis, meningitis, or cellulitis
    • A family history of primary immune deficiency
  • Frequent/recurrent Infections
  • Blood infections
  • Inflammation of internal organs: liver, spleen, pancreas
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Blood disorders
  • Digestive problems
  • Delayed growth and development
  • Genetic factors
  • Abscessed wounds
  • Ineffective use of antibiotics

General Considerations

++

  • May result in secondary problems such as aerobic capacity and muscle endurance impairment, sarcopenia, weakness/impaired muscle performance, musculoskeletal problems, neuromuscular problems, weight loss indicating the need for PT intervention depending on severity
  • Once thought to be rare, ...
