Core Tip Humoral primary immunodeficiencies (hPIDs) are a group of conditions characterized by impaired antibody production and presenting with recurrent respiratory infections, autoimmune diseases, and malignancy. Chest high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) is the imaging technique of choice for detecting, characterizing, and quantifying lung complications in these patients. The aims of this study were to compare HRCT findings in 52 patients with hPIDs subtypes (common variable immunodeficiency disorders - CVID vs CVID-like), and evaluate whether these findings may predict pulmonary function tests results. CVID vs CVID-like patients showed comparable HRCT findings. The presence of tree-in-bud and linear and/or irregular opacities were independent predictors of, respectively, significant obstructive and restrictive defects.
