Abstract

Objectives: Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) usage is a reality in patients with chronic diseases, but there are no data on CAM usage in immunodeficiency diseases necessitating intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy. The aim of this study was to investigate the rate of CAM usage in patients with common variable immunodeficiency (CVID).
