Chronic granulomatous disease in Adult
Recurring granulomatous and purulent infections begin early in life, persist, and lead to early death if the disease is not treated aggressively.
The disease can begin with findings of dermatitis and lymphadenitis in the infant. Subcutaneous abscesses, furunculosis, and suppurative panniculitis are all findings in this disease.
Systemic symptoms include persistent diarrhea, osteomyelitis, chronic urinary tract infections, pericarditis, and liver and lung granulomatous involvement. In older children, acne vulgaris can be severe.
