X-linked Agammaglobulinemia is rare primary immunodeficiency disorder. X-linked Agammaglobulinemia is caused by a mutation on the BTK gene, the gene that is responsible for making B-cells, the cells that later develop into antibodies. As a result of this mutation and the lack of antibodies, people with X-linked Agammaglobulinemia are unable to fend off infections. Because it is an X-linked disease, the majority of people who have X-linked Agammaglobulinemia are men and are diagnosed with the disease when they are babies. Although there is no cure for the disease, treatment options such as immunoglobin replacement therapy and heavy antibiotic use are available.
