Aim: X linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA) and selective IgA deficiency are predominantly antibody deficiency syndromes. Recurrent sinopulmonary infections are common problems observed in both diseases. IgG, IgM and salivary IgA which are present especially in gingival crevice are involved in the defense of the oral cavity. The aim of our study was to investigate oral mucosa, dental health and microfloral variation in selective IgA deficiency and XLA patients by comparison with the healthy group.
