Importance of Long-term Follow-up after Treatment_ part of the SCID Compass series

Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, or SCID, is a life-threatening primary immunodeficiency, typically diagnosed at birth. Early detection is critical for these children, as is the prevention of infection and early treatment. With early treatment, most children with SCID should be able to develop their own working immune system. While most families tend to focus on the best course of treatment, such as hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or gene therapy, long-term care or follow-up is necessary to maintain a healthy life.
