Immune Dysregulation Program
In children with immune dysregulation disorders, the immune system causes multi-system disease with diverse features. Hyperinflammation, autoimmunity and infections can be manifestations of the child's immune disorder. The Immune Dysregulation Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) provides a single place where families can turn for advanced diagnostics of suspected immune disorders and personalized treatments targeting the unique cause of their child’s symptoms.
In a one-day visit to the Immune Dysregulation Clinic, your child with a suspected immune disorder will undergo diagnostic testing, examination and consultation with a selected team of pediatric specialists. The goal is to arrive at a diagnosis and determine a treatment plan tailored to your child.
If your child is experiencing unexplained symptoms that affect multiple organs and doctors can't tell you why, CHOP's Immune Dysregulation Program can find answers. Our program offers coordinated care from experts in every specialty, state-of-the-art diagnostic and genetic tests, and personalized treatments.
Who We're Here For
