Immunoglobulin G deficiency

Common Name(s)

Immunoglobulin G deficiency

Immunoglobulin G (IgG) deficiency is a condition that involves the immune system and is characterized by a shortage of type G antibodies. There are four different subclasses of IgG: IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, and IgG4. People with IgG deficiency may have a decreased amount of one or more of the IgG subclasses. When people also have a shortage of other types of antibodies, they are said to have a combined immunodeficiency. Individuals with IgG deficiency may have an increased susceptibility to infection, but the symptoms of this condition are variable. Some people never experience any symptoms. Treatment may involve antibiotics and intravenous (IV) immunoglobulin.
