Abstract

A woman of 44 had complete deficiency of the second component of complement associated with chronic vasculitis and increased susceptibility to infection. The authors discuss the results of the complement profile, histocompatibility typing, and studies of the functional properties of patient plasma or serum in chemotaxis and opsonization in relation to the disease entity, the susceptibility to infection, a previously undescribed mononeuropathy, arthritis, and Raynaud's phenomenon.
