Four patients with early-onset, life-threatening microbial infections and failure to thrive were found to carry a homozygous duplication c.1292dupG in exon 13 of IKBKB gene that results in a lack of expression of IKBKB (Pannicke U et al. 2013). IKBKB deficiency is associated with severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), a health condition characterized by low levels of immunoglobulins (hypogammaglobulinemia). Further phenotype assessment revealed that patients peripheral-blood B cells and T cells had normal counts but were almost exclusively of naive phenotype. Regulatory T cells and gamma delta T cells were absent.
