Short description
Immunopathology deals with disorders of the immune system. These include autoimmune diseases, allergies and immunodeficiences.

Detailed description

Malfunctions of the innate or adaptive part of the immune system can lead to diseases. This can manifest in an inappropriate reaction towards components of the own body (autoimmunity), in an overactive immune response (hypersensitivity reactions) or in an ineffective immune response (immunodeficiency).
