INTRODUCTION: Primary immunodeficiency (PID) is a rare group of disorders that manifest similarly with infection, neoplasms, allergic, and autoimmune diseases, and are treated with injectable medications. Often the burden of disease and cost of management is excessive, and premature death is not uncommon. In light of these features of PID, it was our objective to survey our cohort to assess for factors that can influence depression and anxiety. METHODS: We used an investigator-developed survey, in addition to the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HAM-D) and the Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale, after institutional review board approval of our pilot study, to determine the extent of anxiety and depression that our patients with PID experienced and variables that may have affected the difference of expression...
