ABSTRACT
It has recently become possible to recognize subpopulations of lymphocytes. Those responsible for cell-mediated immunity are called T-lymphocytes because they are dependent on the thymus for their normal functioning. The primary immunodeficiency disorders can be viewed as defects or deficits in T-cells or B-cells or both. On this basis, a committee of the World Health Organization has attempted to classify the primary immunodeficiency disorders. Male infants with gammaglobulinemia usually remain well during the first 9 months of life, probably because of passive protection afforded by the maternal gamma globulin.
