SCID of Arabian foals is a fatal disease caused by the lack of B- and T-lymphocytes. Thus a foal affected by SCID is born with no immune system, and generally dies of an opportunistic infection such as pneumonia, usually before the age of five or six months. The disease is inherited as an autosomal recessive condition.
