    How did my daughter get a mannoise binding lectin deficiency?

    My daughter has Monnoise Binding Lectin deficiency.

    I had 4 iron transfusions when I was pregnant, is this how she got Monnoise Binding Lectin?

    Is it inherited from my partner or myself?

    My research interests include immunology and the mechanisms of amyloid formation. The latter has implications for people who are dealing with Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease … View Profile

    Mannose Binding Lectin deficiency is prominently genetic so probably why your daughter has it reflects the genes that she got from you and your partner - this is *totally* not your fault  nor that of  your partner so please (both of you) don't feel guilty about this.

    Also, iron transfusions are not a risk factor so you have no reason to feel guilty about them.

    If you have not done so already, seeing a clinical immunologist about your daughter would be a good plan.
