National immunodeficiency registers in several countries have reported prevalence but not incidence rates for severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID). The objective of this study was to document the incidence and type of SCID in Australia, the age and clinical features at presentation and short‐term management. The Australian Paediatric Surveillance Unit conducts active, monthly, national surveillance of rare disorders with reporting by child‐health specialists. Between May 1995 and December… 
Severe Combined Immunodeficiency in Greek Children over a 20-Year Period
TLDR
Findings of the present study suggest that mutations of the γc chain of several cytokine receptors have a rare occurrence in Greece.
Overview of 15-year severe combined immunodeficiency in the Netherlands: towards newborn blood spot screening
TLDR
Because of a high mortality of patients with SCID before HSCT could be initiated, only a national newborn screening program and pre-emptive HSCT or GT will be able to improve survival of these patients.
Severe combined immunodeficiency in Brazil: management, prognosis, and BCG-associated complications.
TLDR
In Brazil, diagnosis of SCID has improved over the last decade, both in terms of the number of cases and age at diagnosis, although a much higher number of Cases had been expected.
Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases: A 30-year Patient Registry from the Referral Center for Primary Immunodeficiencies in Greece
TLDR
The rates of “Combined immunodeficiencies”, “Well-defined syndromes” and “Congenital birth defects and/or function of phagocytes” were significantly higher in this study than in the European Registry (ESID).
Cost-effectiveness of newborn screening for severe combined immunodeficiency
TLDR
Newborn screening for SCID might be cost-effective, but there is still a lot of uncertainty around the cost-effectiveness estimate, so pilot screening projects are warranted for Europe.
Consanguinity Rate and Delay in Diagnosis in Turkish Patients with Combined Immunodeficiencies: a Single-Center Study
TLDR
Twenty-three patients with combined immunodeficiency showing different immunological and clinical phenotypes are reported, majority of whom were admitted because of severe upper and lower respiratory tract infections, and T−B−NK+ category was the most frequent phenotype.
Implementing Routine Testing for Severe Combined Immunodeficiency within Wisconsin's Newborn Screening Program
TLDR
The process used to add SCID to the NBS panel, the establishment of follow-up capacity, and the integration of SCID screening into routine NBS workflows are described so that other states might benefit from the processes used in Wisconsin.
Screening for severe combined immunodeficiency in neonates
TLDR
Newborn screening for SCID using the T- cell receptor excision circle assay has revolutionized early identification of infants with SCID or severe T-cell lymphopenia.

TLDR
SCID severe combined immunodeficiency disease named as bubble boy disease mainly occurs in pediatrics considered as a pediatric emergency require immediate diagnosis and treatment, and can die before the first year of life.

TLDR
The heterogeneous nature of the geographical distribution of cases submitted may indicate underdiagnosis of PID in some country areas; surprisingly, the interval between the onset of clinical symptoms and diagnosis was significant, even in immunodeficiency diseases, such as IgA deficiency, which are easy to diagnose.

TLDR
Compared to previous reports from other European countries, there is a smaller proportion of antibody deficiencies due to few IgA deficiencies registered and a large proportion of complement deficienciesdue to many patients with hereditary angioedema.
