Defective Phagocyic Cells:

• CGD: NADPH oxidase deficiency: catalase+ bacterial and fungal infections.

• Chediak-Higashi syndrome: granule structural defect: recurrent bacterial infections.

• G6PD deficiency: lacks HMP shunt enzyme: catalase+ bacterial and fungal infections.

• Myeloperoxidase deficiency: granule enzyme deficiency: mild or none.

• Leukocyte adhesion deficiency: lacks CD18: recurrent chronic infections; failure to form pus.

Defects in Humoral Immunity:

• Bruton X-linked hypogammaglobulinemia: a tyrosin kinase deficiency; immature B cells. Treat with antibiotics.

• Transient hypogammaglobulinemia of infancy: delayed IgG synthesis. Treat with antibiotics.

• Common variable hypogammaglobulinemia: unknown. Treat with antibiotics.

• Selective IgA deficiency: lack IgA. Treat with antibiotics.

• X-linked hyper-IgM syndrome: lacks CD40L on T-cells. Treat with antibiotics and gammaglobulins.
