Isolated Agammaglobulinemia

X-linked Agammaglobulinemia


  • Lymphocyte phenotype analysis at the time of presentation with echovirus infection revealed an increase in CD2 , CD16 , HNK-1 lymphocytes, a decrease in CD4 T cells as well as absence of B cells.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We report a case of recurrent pneumococcal arthritis as the presenting manifestation of X-linked agammaglobulinemia.[academic.oup.com]
  • The pathogenesis and clinical presentation of X-linked agammaglobulinemia, caused by mutations in the BTK (Bruton’s tyrosine kinase) gene, are then presented in detail, followed by descriptions of the clinical manifestations and molecular basis of the[books.google.com]
  • Definitive identification of the organism by conventional gene sequencing could not be made because multiple organisms were present in the culture.[jamanetwork.com]
  • According to the BTK database ( ), at present 592 unique BTK mutations have been found in XLA patients.[bmcpediatr.biomedcentral.com]

  • After 24 hours of incubation, a few colonies of group B Streptococcus ( S agalactiae ) were observed on the media.[jamanetwork.com]
  • The number of migrated PMN was analyzed by flow cytometry by using the blue-green excitation light (488 nm argon-ion laser).[journals.plos.org]


  • During the workup flow cytometry demonstrates a decrease in normal CD40L cells. Based on these findings, the immunologist decides to pursue a further workup and obtains immunoglobulin levels.[medbullets.com]
  • The patient underwent an extensive diagnostic workup, and the results of microbiology tests are summarized in Table 1, and those of cellular and humoral immunity in Table 2. There was no evidence of autoimmune disease.[jtd.amegroups.com]
  • Diagnostic workup and treatment were performed in Italy. Poliovirus replicated in the gut for 7 months. The 5’ non coding region (NCR), VP1, VP3 capsid proteins and the 3D polymerase genomic regions of sequential isolates were sequenced.[bmcinfectdis.biomedcentral.com]

  • Prompt treatment of infections (or giving antibiotics prophylactically before an infection has occurred).[stanfordchildrens.org]
  • Treatment Treatment of XLA consists of regular intravenous doses of commercially prepared gamma globulin (sold under the trade names Gamimune or Gammagard) to ward off infections. Antibiotics are used to treat infections as they occur.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
  • The mean duration of treatment of bacteremia is 10 to 14 days in immunocompetent individuals. In immunocompromised patients longer treatment may be necessary. Also, in our patient the Campylobacter was hard to eradicate.[link.springer.com]
  • This book is a comprehensive yet manageable resource for physicians and nurses wishing to learn more about PID, as well as a useful tool for both doctors-in-training and specialists in clinical decision-making and treatment planning.[books.google.de]


  • Infants who develop polio or persistent viral infections, however, have a poorer prognosis. Prevention Parents of a child with XLA should consider genetic counseling if they are planning to have more children.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Our results suggest that IVIG replacement represents an important role to improve the prognosis of XLA [ 10 , 11 , 17 ]. Our patients were examined for the presence of BTK gene mutations.[bmcpediatr.biomedcentral.com]
  • Prognosis In the case of the early diagnosis of XLA and an appropriate therapy before the appearance of sequel, prognosis is well. They are encouraged a full active lifestyle and children can attend to all regular school.[intechopen.com]
