Primary Immunodeficiency Program
The Primary Immunodeficiency Program at Children's Wisconsin is staffed by a team of experts who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of complex primary immune deficiencies (non-AIDS conditions).
Our program provides the most advanced care for children with these deficiencies. It is recognized as a Jeffrey Modell Diagnostic Center for primary immune deficiencies. Our team is dedicated to making an early and accurate diagnosis—which is critical for adults and children with these conditions.
