  • Expertise. Mayo Clinic doctors trained in immune system disorders have expertise in caring for people with CVID and other primary immunodeficiency conditions. The Primary Immunodeficiency Center at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, is a designated referral center for the Jeffrey Modell Foundation — a nonprofit organization that promotes and conducts research for primary immunodeficiency disorders. In addition, the Department of Medical Genetics includes clinical geneticists who are physicians certified in primary immunodeficiency conditions.
  • Diagnosis and treatment experience. Mayo Clinic doctors provide timely diagnosis and treatment of CVID and work closely with you to provide the most appropriate care for your needs or your child's. Treatments for CVID focus on decreasing the frequency and the severity of your infections and may include immunoglobulin and antibiotic therapies. Doctors trained in pediatric immunodeficiency disorders care for children with CVID and other immune system disorders.
  • Genetic counseling. Analysis of your DNA can reveal whether you have inherited the gene that causes CVID. Mayo Clinic's Department of Medical Genetics can help you understand how a genetically based disorder, such as common variable immunodeficiency, affects you or your child and your family.
