Abstract / Description of output

We report the cases of four pregnant women with primary hypogammaglobulinaemia, who received intramuscular, intravenous or no replacement therapy with IgG in late pregnancy, and review the literature. Intravenous replacement administered to the mother during pregnancy produces adequate serum IgG levels in the neonate, and should be the treatment of choice in this situation.
