Master Harsha was born normal. Recurrent infection started when he was just 2 months old. The child was diagnosed to have Atopic Dermatitis at the age of 2 months. The child has gone through 5 admissions for serious infections:

4. In the age of 3 ½ years, the child was hospitalized for 12 days due to gluteal abscess with septic shock.

After such recurrent infections, the child was referred to Dr Surjit Singh, Pediatric Immunologist, PGI, Chandigarh and then he confirmed that the child is suffering from “PRIMARY IMMUNODEFFICIENCY (WISKA ALDRICH SYNDROME)”.
