AbstractFrom July 1988 to December 1989, six boys with chronic granulomatous disease were diagnosed in our institutions. Their clinical features were reviewed in order to delineate the pattern of infections which seems to have both similarities and differences when compared with published reports of Caucasian patients. The most striking difference was the lack of skin sepsis and chronic lymphadenitis in our six patients. Gram-negative organisms were the commonest pathogens while Staphylococci sp. were not isolated. Clinical features which should alert one to the diagnosis were also highlighted. Prophylactic co-trimoxazole was effective in reducing the frequency of bacterial infections. Early diagnosis is not only essential for optimal patient management but also for genetic counselling for the extended family.
