Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is the most common symptomatic primary immunodeficiency in adults. CVID is characterized by reduced serum levels of IgG, IgA, and/or IgM, recurrent bacterial infections, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and malignancies. According to literature, autoimmune diseases occur in 20-30% of CVID patients. Dermatological involvement has occasionally been reported in CVID and includes alopecia totalis, lichen planus, and vitiligo. Data regarding the frequency and features of psoriasis in CVID are scant.

Abstract

Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is the most common symptomatic primary immunodeficiency in adults. CVID is characterized by reduced serum levels of IgG, IgA, and/or IgM, recurrent bacterial infections, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and malignancies. According to literature, autoimmune diseases occur in 20-30% of CVID patients. Dermatological involvement has occasionally been reported in CVID and includes alopecia totalis, lichen planus, and vitiligo. Data regarding the frequency and features of psoriasis in CVID are scant.
