Authors: Patel NC
Primary immunodeficiency diseases (PIDD) are a group of genetic conditions that are generally considered to be underdiagnosed, and gaps may exist in the knowledge of treatment options. This review focuses on the diagnosis of pediatric patients with primary antibody deficiency and considerations for treatment with immunoglobulin (IgG) to optimize multiple dosing variables and minimize adverse events. The possibility of individualizing IgG therapy in clinical practice represents, in this field, the next pivotal step with the goal of improving the quality of life of pediatric patients with PIDD.
