    Abstract

    A 27-year-old man with severe infantile kyphoscoliosis suffered from recurrent respiratory tract infections during childhood and early adult life. He deteriorated and was found to have pernicious anaemia and common variable immunodeficiency with hypogammaglobulinaemia and impairment of cell-mediated immunity. Marked clinical improvement has followed the institution of effective gamma-globulin replacement.
