Abstract

An eleven-year-old boy with a history of severe lung infection which had been resistant to antibiotic therapy for a period of six months demonstrated a functional leukocyte defect similar to that found in children with chronic granulomatous disease (CGD). X - ray findings suggested a hilar mass, and granulomatous lesions developed on the thorax wall. The documentation of this case suggests that there may be a late presenting form of CGD.
