Immunodeficiency illnesses occur when the immune system is not working properly. There are two categories of immunodeficiency disorders. Those that occur at birth due to a genetic cause (primary), and those that are acquired (secondary). There are hundreds of different types of immunodeficiency disorders, and the causes and symptoms can vary greatly from person to person. Immunodeficiency disorders prevent your body from fighting infections and diseases, which makes you more susceptible to viruses and bacterial infections.
