Diseases of the immune system (Immunology)
In our outpatient clinic we treat children with suspected congenital disorders of the immune system. This includes diseases characterized by a weakness of the immune system (immune deficiency), but also diseases with defective regulation of the immune system and unclear, recurring fever states (auto-inflammation). With our experienced team we run one of the largest immune deficiency outpatient clinics in Germany. We have special diagnostics that are only available at few centers in Germany. We are a JMF center, Find-ID certified and listed by the Association for Pediatric Immunology (API) as a so-called CID center. As such, we perform the immediately required diagnostics in case of abnormal SCID screening (for further information please click here). Due to the cooperation with our colleagues in pediatric oncology we can offer all the necessary treatment forms for immune deficiencies.
Important information for your visit to the outpatient clinic
Please bring with you:
- Referral to pediatric immunology (please make sure that exactly these words appear on the referral. New referral needed for every quarter)
- Insurance card

We ask the parents, also in the interest of the other patients, to arrive punctually at the agreed time. If you are unable to make the appointment, please cancel in time.
Helpful information for parents
Would you like to learn more about immunodeficiencies?
Would you like to get to know other families with children also affected by an immune deficiency?
What does the future of a child look like?
Are there treatment alternatives?
We offer you to discuss these questions with a doctor, a nurse and a psychologist, as well as with other families over a whole weekend and to create new perspectives for everyday life.
With a nationwide working group of immunodeficiency outpatient clinics, we have organized a weekend on these topics. At present, we offer these so-called "patient training courses" for antibody deficiency diseases, i.e. the diseases which are treated with immunoglobulins.
