Dear Dr. Geha,
I am Dr. Francisco J. Espinosa-Rosales and I am the chief of the immunology department at the “Instituto Nacional de Pediatría” (National Institute of Pediatrics) in Mexico City.
The purpose of this communication is to inform you that We received trough Mr. Andrés Treviño 50 grams of IVIG.
We really appreciate your donation and I want to tell you those 50 grams were used as soon as they arrived in a little girl with a severe form of lupus nephritis with severe hypogammaglobulinemia and sepsis. We could not use any immunosuppresive drug because of the sepsis and the lupus was very active. The girl is actually doing very well at home .
In our Department We have the largest primary immunodeficiency and rheumatology clinics in Mexico. We have been designated as the National reference center for Immunodeficiency diagnosis and treatment.
Thanks again for your help and I look forwar to meet you in the near future.
Dr. Francisco J. Espinosa-Rosales
Chief of the Immunology Department

Insurgentes Sur 3700-C col. Insurgentes Cuicuilco, Mexico City, MEXICO 04530
