Immune System

Our child has CdLS. Will she have a low immune system?

There has never been any major reason to suspect a problem with the immune system. The children appear to get routine pediatric illnesses. Some children do get recurrent upper respiratory tract infections, but the cause is unclear. A study is currently underway to assess this.
