Simplifying Therapy for Severe Combined ImmunodeficiencyDiplomat supports patients with personalized care.
SCID affects the immune system — the body’s way of keeping itself from getting sick. People who have SCID are born without B or T cells, the types of cells that help fight off infections. For people who have SCID, even the common cold can become a life-threatening illness.
SCID is a genetic condition, meaning children inherit it from their parents. It is very rare. About one person in a million has SCID.
SCID is treatable. If people who have SCID are screened and treated properly, they can live normal and healthy lives.

What are the symptoms of Severe Combined Immunodeficiency?
SCID is usually detected very early in life. A baby with SCID will have persistent symptoms such as recurring ear infections or pneumonia. They might also have recurring thrush (yeast infection) in the mouth or throat. Babies might also show failure to thrive — that is, they might not grow or weigh as much as they should.
Adults who have SCID will have many of the same symptoms — recurrent respiratory infections, diarrhea, and sepsis (infection in the blood).
