 en Recurrent pyogenic meningitis in a 17-year-old: A delayed presentation of X-linked agammaglobulinemia with growth hormone deficiency
Sabnis, Girish R.; Karnik, Niteen D.; Chavan, Swati A. & Korivi, Deepa S.


We report an adolescent male with X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA) and recurrent episodes of pyogenic meningitis. The workup for proportionate short stature revealed isolated growth hormone deficiency. This patient highlights the delayed presentation of the XLA variant and the need to consider primary immunodeficiency in patients with recurrent serious infections, irrespective of age.
