Abstract

Omenn syndrome is a rare form of severe combined immune deficiency (SCID) with distinctive clinical and immunologic features(1). It was first described by Omenn in 1965 under the title of: Familial Reticuloen-Dotheliosis

with Eosinophilia(2),. Since then, over 45 cases has been described(1). In this paper; we are reporting the first case of Omenn's syndrome in Qatar community.
