1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Scid children have a much decreased ability to fight off infections, so they can develop overwhelming sepsis infections from germs that would only cause minor problems in normal, non-scid children.

In brief: Bacterial or viral

Either bacterial or viral illness can cause sepsis in scid as the body does not have an immune system to fight the infection.
