Abstract

The authors present the clinical and immunological data concerning a female child with a selective IgA deficiency, who has been suffering since the first years of life from eczema and recurrent infections of the upper respiratory tract and the urinary tract. One of the outstanding features of the case described is the appearance of an acute idiopathic thrombocytopenia whose course did not present any significant peculiarity. The authors discuss the possible relationships between the assumed autoimmune pathogenesis of the idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and the selective IgA deficiency which represents a condition at risk for the autoimmune phenomena.
