Transient hypogammaglobulinemia of infancy

Transient hypogammaglobulinemia of infancy

Transient hypogammaglobulinemia of infancy is a form of hypogammaglobulinemia appearing after birth, leading to a reduction in the level of IgG, and also sometimes IgA and IgM. (The ratios of immunoglobulins vary rapidly in all infants, and the term dysgammaglobulinemia, although theoretically applicable, isn't usually used in this context.)

It can result in increased infections, but it can also present without symptoms.
