Rare Diseases and Immune System

Immune system is a body defense system and works to defend the body against harmful foreign substances, or pathogens, either by preventing them from entering the body in the first place or by attacking them once they get inside. The immune system acts as a layer of defense and engulfs or swallows the foreign substances entering the body. The changes in the activities of the immune system may lead to reduced immunity. In a rare condition, like in SCID, Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, the infant is born without a developed adaptive immune system. This disease is expected to occur in 1 of 100,000 births. The child is extremely responsive to infection and various other diseases. Some of the other diseases that affect the immune system: Chediak-Higashi Disease, Mosaic variegated aneuploidy (MVA) syndrome, hereditary angioedema with C1-inhibitor deficiency, Warts Hypogammaglobulinemia Immunodeficiency Myelokathexis (WHIM) syndrome, Bradykinin-mediated angioedema (Bk-AE) and many more.
