Angry SCID vs DiGeorge

Hi all!
I am very confused regarding when to use SCID or DiGeorge as an answer option...both have absence of thymic shadows and both cause VIRAL and FUNGAL infections.

can anyone point out very distinct points or factors about either of them that would reduce the confusion?

thanks in advance!

When you see ''recurrent chronic diarrhea'' in the question stem ,it is SCID, they most often times always put it in there.
