This is the first e-book on Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD). This book is meant for everyone involved in the diagnosis, treatment or guidance of patients with this disease, as well as for the patients and their parents/caretakers, investigators and students experiencing this disease.

The authors hope that this book will help everybody involved to gain more knowledge about the cause of CGD, the symptoms and the treatment of the patients in various geographical regions to help to improve their lives.

The authors have invited experts in the various aspects of CGD (fellow authors) to write chapters on their specialty, and have sent these chapters to other specialists (the contributors) for comments and additions.
