Abstract

Children and adults can have recurrent infection with invasive encapsulated bacterial pathogens such as Streptococcus pneumoniae as a result of a selective inability to respond to polysaccharide antigens. We have identified a mutation in the gene encoding Bruton's tyrosine kinase in a male patient with selective anti-polysaccharide antibody deficiency.
