Intravenous immunoglobulin replacement therapy is necessary for primary antibody deficiencies, but it has the risk of potential side effects. A number of adverse reactions have been reported as primary immunodeficiency diseases. We reported a case of X-linked hypogammaglobulinemia with anti-IgA antibody diagnosed suffered from side effects on each IVIG. In immunodeficiencies patients, it has been considered that the reaction rate is very low. It is necessary to discuss countermeasures for cases with adverse reactions.
