Primary antibody deficiencies represent by far the largest group of primary immunodeficiencies (PID) at 56% (ESID Registry), however the proportion of patients in whom antibody deficiency represents a component of their condition is greater still at around 75% (1). It has become clear over recent years that while the vast majority of such patients experience recurrent infections a significant proportion are also affected by non-infectious dysregulatory complications which include malignancy, autoimmunity, inflammation and allergy (Figure 1). The increasingly complex manifestations of Primary Antibody Deficiencies have a major impact on the clinical management of patients and raise diagnostic and therapeutic challenges (2). This Research Topic draws together a series of reports focusing on a range of these non-infectious complications and their clinical implications.
