Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD) is a rare immunodeficiency disease described as a lack of destruction of bacteria and fungi phagocytes by neutrophils and macrophages, it is related to an abnormality of NADPH oxidase, a free radical producer of oxygen. The most common aspect of CGD at the age of one year, is an infection of the skin or bone by two bacteria called staphylococcus aureus and serratia marcescens. In this article, the authors report a case of CGD revealed by multiple cystic and pseudo-tumoral liver lesions discovered during prolonged fever.
