Primary Immunodeficiency Disorders (PIDD)

As a group, these disorders encompass 100+ distinct dysregulation disorders of the protective immune system.   The designation of “Primary” excludes external causes of decreased immunity from AIDS and medications used to treat cancers and some autoimmune diseases.

Frequent bacterial infections such as sinusitis and pneumonia result from a decreased ability of the immune system to fight such infections.  Some allergists prefer to send patients with these conditions to university centers for diagnosis and care so be sure your physician is qualified and feels comfortable diagnosing and treating these problems. 

The main reason I included immunology in the name of my clinic was to indicate my interest and specialization in the diagnosis and treatment of the various primary immunodeficiency disorders.
