What is Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD)?
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is an inherited disorder in which certain immune system cells called phagocytes do not function properly and are unable to kill some types of bacteria and fungi. This disorder leads to chronic and recurrent infections. The condition is often discovered very early in childhood. Milder forms may be diagnosed during the teenage years or even in adulthood.
