Severe combined immunodeficiency is a rare genetic illness that occurs due to genetic abnormalities that disrupt the functional development of B cells and T cells and modify the clinical presentation. Other names for it include Swiss-type agammaglobulinemia, bubble boy disease, and bubble baby disease. There are roughly 13 different genetic disorders that can cause severe combined immunodeficiency. These flaws also make people highly susceptible to life-threatening diseases. Infants with 80% severe combined immunodeficiency do not have a family history of the condition. In this article, we will read briefly about severe combined immunodeficiency.
Severe combined immunodeficiency is an uncommon disorder caused by genetic abnormalities that affect immune cell function and development. Infants with severe combined immunodeficiency appear healthy but are incredibly vulnerable to life-threatening infections. Until or unless newborns undergo immune restoration therapy, such as gene therapy, enzyme therapy, and hematopoietic stem cells.

AYURVEDIC ASPECT OF SEVERE COMBINED IMMUNODEFICIENCY
In Ayurveda, we can correlate severe combined immunodeficiency with anuvanshik vyadhi (inherited disease) and oja kshaya (immune deficiency). Anuvanshik vyadhi in a person develops at birth as a result of beej dosha (sperm and ovum malformation). Oja refers to immunity or resistance to diseases of two types: one that lessens the manifestation of the disease, and the other variety that prevents the manifestation of diseases. Normal doshas (vata, pitta, and kapha), equilibrium state of dhatu, normal agni, patency of srotas, and other factors that support the equilibrium condition of all physiological parameters are the factors that lead to oja (immunity). Oja is the core of rasadhi dhatus, which is also known as bala (strength).
CAUSATIVE FACTOR OF OJA KASHAY
अभिघातात् क्षयात् कोपाच्छोकाद्धयानाच्छ्रमात् क्षुधः।
ओजः सड्.क्षीयते ह्योभ्यो धातुग्रहणनिः सृतम्।
तेजः समीरितं तस्माद्विस्त्रंसयति देहिनः।। (सु.सू १५ /२८)
According to Acharya Sushruta, Ojas decreases as a result of any injury or harm.
- Body discomfort
- Tissue exhaustion
- Hunger, etc., causes fluid to flow out of the dhatus and become associated with tejas under the control of vata.
CLINICAL FEATURES OF OJA KASHAY
मूर्च्छा मांसक्षयो मोह: प्रलापोऽज्ञानमेव च ।
पूर्वोक्तानि च लिङ्गानि मरणं च बलक्षये ।। (सु.सू १५ /३२)
- Wasting of muscles
- Improper perception of knowledge
Oja kshaya and anuvanshik vyadhi are incurable because of improper understanding. We can only provide supportive care using herbal medications to stop the disease from getting worse and provide some immunity to fight against other infections.
