Abstract

Background: Primary immunodeficiencies (PIDs) are a heterogeneous group of congenital disorders characterized by susceptibility to recurrent infections, allergy, malignancies and autoimmunity. The identification of disease-causing genetic defects is critically important for treatment options. In last decade, next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based methods has enabled the rapid genetic screening and the discovery of new genetic defects in PIDs. In this study, we investigated causative mutations in patients with PID by NGS.
