immune system

Secondary disorders happen when an outside insult, such as a toxic chemical or infection, attacks your body. Severe burns and radiation also can cause secondary disorders. Secondary disorders include:

  • AIDS
  • cancers of the immune system, such as leukemia
  • immune-complex diseases, such as viral hepatitis
  • multiple myeloma (a cancer of the plasma cells, which produce antibodies)

How Are Immunodeficiency Disorders Treated?

The treatment for each immunodeficiency disorder will be tailored to its specific conditions. For example, AIDS causes several different infections. Your doctor will prescribe medications that are appropriate for each infection.

Treatment for immunodeficiency disorders commonly includes antibiotics and antibody replacement. A drug called interferon is a common treatment for the viral infections caused by a disorder.

If your bone marrow isn’t producing enough lymphocytes, your doctor might order a bone marrow transplant.
