The molecular bases of most primary immunodeficiencies (PID) have been discovered. Long-term follow-up of patient cohorts treated with antimicrobial prophylaxis has demonstrated good short-term prognosis but with increasing morbidity and mortality over time. The results of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) for PID have improved incrementally over time, with survival and cure of 90% for some defined diseases. This article examines the advances in HSCT for PID and argues that HSCT should be considered earlier for most patients. © 2008 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
