Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID)
At Children’s Hospital Boston, we know that the first step to treating your child is forming an accurate, timely diagnosis.
How is SCID diagnosed?
A diagnosis of SCID is usually made based on a complete medical history and physical examination of your child. In addition, multiple blood tests – including a complete blood cell count – may be ordered to help confirm the diagnosis.
