What is Hyper IgM Syndrome?


Hyper IgM Syndrome is a very rare, and potentially life-threatening genetic mutation that severely compromises the immune system. 

X-Linked Hyper IgM compromises the body’s ability to produce responses to pathogens such as bacteria and viruses. In a normal functioning immune system, a person will produce immunoglobulins or antibodies in response to an encounter with a pathogen such as bacteria or a virus. A person with Hyper IgM Syndrome, however, can only create very basic, primitive and largely ineffective IgM antibodies.

As a result of their inability to produce antibodies, patients with Hyper IgM are at significant risk for opportunistic and repeated infections. Combined with repeated infections over time, this defect in the T-cells poses a significantly increased risk for cancer.
