These four chapters . Nezelof syndrome is an autosomal recessive congenital immunodeficiency condition due to underdevelopment of the defect is a type of purine nucleoside phosphorylase deficiency with inactive phosphorylase, this results in an accumulation of deoxy-GTP which inhibits ribonucleotide cleotide reductase catalyzes the formation of deoxyribonucleotides from .
