Abstract

Genetic counseling and prenatal diagnosis are an important part of the general approach to families with severe immune deficiency. Over the years, several techniques have been developed for prenatal diagnosis of immune deficiency, based on immunophenotypic and functional tests, or more recently on molecular assays. We report the five-year experience of the Dept. of Pediatrics, University of Brescia: out of 26 fetuses at-risk for immunodeficiency, 7 were identified as affected by prenatal diagnosis. In three cases, as opposed to elective abortion, the couple decided for continuation of the pregnancy; in one case a bone marrow transplantation was performed at one month of life, whereas two fetuses were treated by in-utero bone marrow transplantation. Therefore, in addition to early detection of affected fetuses, prenatal diagnosis of primary immune deficiencies also allows timely planning of adequate therapeutic strategies.
