This is a very heterogeneous deficiency classified as X chromosome-linked CGD (gp91-phox subunit) and as autosomal recessive chronic granulomatous disease, where any of the subunits of the enzyme, that is, p22-phox, p47-phox and p67-phox, may be affected. The most frequent clinical findings include, among others, lymphadenopathy, splenohepatomegaly and pneumonia. Broad-spectrum antibiotics for the treatment of the disease and gamma interferon for the treatment of severe infections are used in X chromosome-linked chronic granulomatous disease.
