Abstract

Background. Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is a rare disease characterized by humoral immunodeficiency, often causing sinopulmonary and gastrointestinal infections, and may cause enteropathy in some patients, which leads to severe malnutrition and electrolyte deficiencies. Although many autoimmune diseases are seen with increased frequency in CVID patients, primary hypoparathyroidism is extremely rare.
