Common Variable Immunodeficiency (CVID) is a condition that impairs the immune system. People with CVID are highly susceptible to foreign invaders, such as bacteria and viruses, and often develop recurrent infections, especially in the lungs, ears, and sinuses. Symptoms may occur throughout childhood and adolescence, but often subside in adulthood. Pneumonia and gastrointestinal issues are common in people with CVID and may result in chronic lung disease or other digestive issues, respectively. The awareness ribbon for CVID is zebra print and products representing this condition are available in the CVID Warrior Collection in the Unchargeables Shop.
