Dima Vatagin

1 year and 7 months old, Stavropol
Diagnosis: Primary immunodeficiency. Anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia.
A genetic research (mutation screening of the EDA gene) was conducted. The cost was 12,000 rubles.


Dima doesn’t have sudoriferous glands. This means, that his thermoregulation has failed. As a result his temperature is permanently changing. He needs to stay in a cool place, and it is strictly forbidden for him to be disposed to the sun. Every hour his parents spray him with cool water. But the saddest thing is that due to a malfunction in the body, Dima’s teeth don’t grow that, in turn, causes a deformation of his craniofacial bones. That is why he needs dental prosthetics every six months.

Now to diagnose his illness and appoint treatment, that will support his body, there is urgent necessity for a complex genetic examination, which costs 12 000 roubles (--- Euro/$).
