Primary immunodeficiencies (PI) are a group of rare chronic conditions. There are over 450 PIs already discovered, and they are reported to occur in about one out of every 1,200 people. In this video, Charlotte Cunningham-Rundles, MD, PhD, Professor of Immunology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, describes the infectious and non-infectious complications of primary immunodeficiency.
