Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is a phagocytic disorder affecting the NADPH oxidase complex [1]. Mutations in the CYBB gene result in X-linked form of CGD (XL-CGD). Female carriers of XL-CGD are known to have autoimmune phenomenon, and extreme lyonization of the X chromosome in female carriers could also result in deficient gp91phox protein and manifestations of CGD [2]. We report a family with X-linked CGD due to a novel CYBB defect where the index patient had a severe form of CGD, sister had manifestations of CGD, and carrier mother had manifestations of lupus.
