The Common variable Immunodeficiency (CVID) is next to the selective IgA-deficiency the most frequent primary immunodeficiency syndrome. Because of its variable clinical manifestations and age of declaration, CVID can mimic different other pathologies and is therefore frequently diagnosed in a later stage of the disease. However, as a consequence of late diagnosis, irreversible organ damage can have occurred which could have been prevented by early treatment. Therefore, early diagnosis of CVID by the general practitioner in patients with recurrent infections or other typical clinical manifestations is of great importance.
