Autoimmune Disease in Primary Immunodeficiency (PIDD)

From Immunology and Allergy Clinics:

The association of autoimmunity and primary immunodeficiency is well known. It suggests the existence of links between the various elements of the immune system and the maintenance of self-tolerance.

In monogenic primary immunodeficiencies (PID), genetic lesions on tolerance may correlate with autoimmune and inflammatory syndromes.
