Abstract

Multiple immunologic disturbances are commonly observed in individuals with Down's syndrome including abnormal proportions of peripheral blood lymphoid subsets, cellular dysfunction, and autoimmune phenomena. However, a majority of the individuals with this syndrome do not show clear features of immunological disease. Many of these immunological alterations are age-related changes and can be enclosed in the spectrum of multiple signs of early senescence characteristic of Down's syndrome.
