Abstract

Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is a disorder of the adaptive immune system and is the second most common primary immunodeficiency syndrome. It is characterized by an all-round reduction in immunoglobulin levels, and such patients are susceptible to a variety of gastrointestinal pathologies with nonspecific manifestations. The gastrointestinal mucosa of CVID patients can microscopically mimic collagenous colitis, lymphocytic colitis, coeliac disease and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Here we describe a case of malabsorption syndrome with CVID along with features of crohn’s colitis. The patient responded well to a course of corticosteroids, which was the primary modality of treatment in this case..

Keywords: Common Variable Immunodeficiency (CVID); Primary Immune Deficiency; Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD); Crohn’s Disease; Malabsorption Syndrome; Gastrointestinal (GI) Tract; Corticosteroids
