Abstract

Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD), a rare immunodeficiency, typically presents with recurrent infections caused by catalase-positive organisms. We report 2 patients with CGD who presented with eosinophilic inflammatory conditions recognized before the diagnosis of CGD. Both patients had significant urologic disease. Physicians should be aware of the association of CGD with eosinophilic inflammatory conditions.
