Dr. Jay Park answered

Immunodeficiency: White blood cells (WBC) roam the various tissues and engulf bacteria and fungi they encounter and then digest them inside themselves. When a crucial molecule, the reactive oxygen species (ros) is not present to enable the killing, the infection is not stopped. So these patients get sick often.
