Abstract

We read with interest the paper by Svensson et al. [1] regarding IgG subclass deficiency in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). In contrast to our study [2], Svensson et al. failed to find an association between infection with either IgG subclass deficiency or hypogammaglobulinaemia (reduced total IgG level), while our study found an association with both.
