MBL deficiency

Recommended Posts

Hi, Everyone ,


Gareth had a lot of blood work done the beginning of April by his new Immunologist. She called today and said he has MBL - Mannose-binding Lectin deficiency. I guess it explains why he has always had numerous ear infections, pneumonias, cellulitis, etc. It has to do with the Complement system of the body - plasma proteins. I don't know, she lost me when she whipped off the name of the deficiency!!! She's checking on the treatment plan -- either continual, low dose antibiotics and/or IV Ig monthly treatments. Anyone else heard of this or have it?


Take care, Everyone.
