Incidence of typically Severe Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases in Consanguineous and Non-consanguineous Populations Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Purpose Primary immunodeficiency diseases are considered to be rare diseases; however, data on the exact birth incidences of these diseases are sparse. Southern Israel is inhabited by two major populations: a relatively non-consanguineous Jewish population and a highly consanguineous Muslim Bedouin population. We sought to calculate the incidences of typically severe primary immunodeficiency diseases and compare the incidences in these populations.
