Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is an inherited neutrophil phagocytic function disorder leading to recurrent infections, granuloma formations, and rarely autoimmune diseases. We report a case of genetically proven autosomal recessive CGD in a child with a mutation in NCF2 gene resulting in p67phox defect presenting with foot abscess caused by Serratia marcescens and autoimmune dactylitis at the same time. The case emphasizes the importance to consider a primary immunodeficiency in patients with musculoskeletal manifestations who develop unusual or opportunistic infections. We also hope awareness among pediatricians may lead to increased recognition of the autoimmune manifestations of CGD.
