Answer

Clinical manifestations of common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) include recurrent infections, autoimmune disease, lymphoid hyperplasia, granulomatous diseases, and malignancy. Recurrent infection was the only presenting symptom in 26% of patients reported by the European common variable immunodeficiency registry. [6] Patients with bacterial infections alone have markedly improved survival compared with those that have other disease-related complications.
