Complement deficiency is a condition of absent or suboptimal functioning of one of the complement system proteins.
Additional recommended knowledge
The disorders can be divided into two categories:
- Disorders of the proteins which act to activate the complement system (such as C3) can lead to an underactive response, causing greater susceptibility to infections.
Because there are redundancies in the immune system, many complement disorders are never diagnosed. A recent study estimated that less than 10% are identified.
