Answer

Immunodeficiency states may be congenital or acquired. The most common congenital conditions (albeit rare) involve B-lymphocyte functions. Hypogammaglobulinemia in these cases may take one of the following forms [39, 40, 41, 42] :

  • Immunoglobulin G (IgG) subclass deficiency

  • X-linked agammaglobulinemia

  • Immunoglobulin A (IgA) deficiency

  • Immunoglobulin M (IgM) deficiency

  • Immunoglobulin E (IgE) deficiency
