Abstract

Purpose Primary immunodeficiency diseases (PIDs) are inherited disorders of the immune system resulting in increased susceptibility to unusual infections and predisposition to autoimmunity and malignancies. The European Society for Immunodeficiencies (ESID) has developed an internet-based database for clinical and research data on patients with PID. This study aimed to provide a minimum estimate of the prevalence of each disorder and to determine the clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients with PID in Turkey.
