    Hi,

    I have had chronic bacterial and viral infections for decades...diagnosed with ME/ CFS 18 years ago and a Primary Immune Defeciency three years ago and placed on IVIG...has anyone been referred ( or referred themselves) for formal genetic testing?
    I am trying to get an appointment with the Genetics Department at Brigham and Women's in Boston.
    If you have seen a Genetics Team were the results informative and useful?
    Thanks!
