Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), or 
Bubble Boy Syndrome, (also known as 
"Glanzmann–Riniker syndrome," 
"Severe mixed immunodeficiency syndrome," and 
"Thymic alymphoplasia") 
is a genetic disorder in which both "arms" (B cells and T cells) of the adaptive immune system are crippled, due to a defect in one of several possible genes. SCID is a severe form of heritable immunodeficiency.
