Good's syndrome

Good's Syndrome was first described in 1955. Patients develop a thymoma (tumour of the thymus) and have greatly reduced antibody efficiency.

It's a rare disease, but nevertheless affects several thousand people worldwide each year.

The cause is unknown. and the exact criteria for diagnosing the syndrome have still not been formally agreed.

Fifty-five years after Dr. Good’s original observations on thymoma and hypogammaglobulinemia, the pathogenesis of this primary immunodeficiency syndrome remains incompletely understood.
