Background: Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is a rare primary immunodeficiency disorder of phagocytes resulting in impaired killing of bacteria and fungi. A mutation in one of the 4 genes encoding the components p22(phox), p47(phox), p67(phox), and p40(phox) of the leukocyte nicotinamide dinucleotide phosphate reduced (NADPH) oxidase leads to autosomal recessive (AR) CGD. A mutation in the CYBB gene encoding gp91(phox) leads to X-linked recessive CGD.
