Inmunology Center - PueblaCare

We carry out the diagnosis and comprehensive treatment of immunodeficiencies
and immunological disorders. We have a multidisciplinary medical team that allows us to provide comprehensive care.

Immune system
It is composed of the set of cells that defend us against infections by viruses, bacteria and fungi. White blood cells or leukocytes are divided into groups that have different defense functions, for example lymphocytes, neutrophils, etc.

What happens if the immune system is altered?
When the immune system decreases its functioning, it loses the ability to fight infections and cancer cells, and when it hyperreacts, allergic and autoimmune diseases are triggered, as well as rejection of organs and tissues.

What are immunological disorders?
a) Primary immunodeficiencies. They are rare and must be detected early to avoid severe complications.
b) Immunodeficiencies secondary to other background conditions such as: allergies, infections, extensive burns, diabetes; to treatment with chemotherapy, radiotherapy or advanced age.
c) Allergy: rhinitis, asthma, atopic dermatitis, urticaria, food or medication, etc.
d) Autoimmune: diabetes, hyperthyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, psoriasis, among others.

Which patients require their immune system to be studied?
Those who suffer from: frequent, chronic, difficult-to-control infections (pneumonia, pharyngotonsillitis, diarrhoea, urinary tract, vaginal, renal, venereal infections, osteomyelitis, abscesses, thrush, etc.), persistent or that do not respond to treatment, or who have difficulty gaining weight.
Patients with infections caused by aggressive microbes such as: herpes simplex virus, zoster, oncogenic viruses (Epstein-Barr, cytomegalovirus, parvovirus, B19) or bacteria (H. pylory) and fungi (candida albicans), and who require management with multiple antibiotics.
