Recurrent Infections

Understanding immune related symptoms and features.

Symptoms may affect multiple parts of the body. Understanding which part of the body a symptom affects, can help us to better understand the potential underlying causes of a symptom, including a rare disease or genetic syndrome.

The immune system is made up of a very complex network of cells and proteins which defend and protect the body against infection. Essentially the immune system is able to remember each and every germ it has defeated before, so should that same germ attack again the body is ready to respond quickly.

Symptoms which affect the immune system may impact on its ability to fight infections, and trigger other medical and health conditions as a result. This can lead to a compromised immune system, recurrent infections and an impact on other parts, systems and functions of the body.

What are recurrent infections?

Recurrent infections is an increased susceptibility to infections. These can be complex and severe persistent infections that could indicate an issue with the immune system.

It is important to remember that most children with recurrent infections do have a normal immunity.

What should I do next?

In some instances, recurrent infections may be one of the features of a rare disease or genetic syndrome. In this case fast, targeted genetic analysis can give you a more accurate diagnosis.
