In brief: Immune dysfunction

Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is an inherited disorder. In CGD, immune cells called phagocytes are unable to kill some types of bacteria and fungi.
This disorder leads to long-term (chronic) and repeated (recurrent) infections. Recurrent infections should be worked up by a physician to determine the cause.
