ASPHO Webinar: Laboratory Evaluation of Primary Immunodeficiencies and Immune Dysregulation Syndromes

Meeting Description:

Many new monogenetic immune defects are marked by autoimmunity, lymphoproliferation, and hyperinflammation rather than infectious complications.  Hematology-oncology physicians might be among the first to evaluate these patients. Practicing pediatric hematology-oncology physicians and trainees must have a greater foundation of knowledge regarding the laboratory evaluation of these unique and often complex patients.  A webinar focused on the best practice in laboratory evaluation of these immunological disorders is vital to ensure timely diagnosis and treatment for these patients and their families.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe specific examples of primary immunodeficiency and immune dysregulation disorders.
  • Discuss tests that are commonly used in the laboratory evaluation of patients with primary immunodeficiency and immune dysregulation syndromes.
  • Discuss the application of laboratory based evaluation of primary immunodeficiency and immune dysregulation disorders in a case-based fashion.
