Reversible T cell depression in malnourished infants with pneumocystis pneumonia

, : Reversible T cell depression in malnourished infants with pneumocystis pneumonia. Journal of Pediatrics 90(6): 1032-1033

Three malnourished Vietnamese refugee children were studied after recovery from pneumocystis pneumonia [for case-reports see Gleason, Roden & DeCastro (1975). J. Pediatr. 87, 1001]. 2 months after recovery the infants were still malnourished and T-cells were significantly depressed compared to age-matched and normal adult controls. B-cells did not differ significantly. After 8 months, T-cells had increased significantly. Reversible T-cell depression may be the reason why nutritional deficiency predisposes to pneumocystis pneumonia.
