Chronic Granulomatous Disease Treatments


Talk with your doctor about the best plan for you. Treatment options include:


  • Antibiotics—used for preventative and fungal treatments, and new infections
  • Interferon gamma —reduces the number of infections in patients; not useful in acute (newly active) infections

Bone Marrow Transplantation

Bone marrow transplantation may be an option. A suitable donor will need to be found. It is a definitive cure.


Surgery may involve the debridement or removal of abscesses.


Some live viral vaccines should be avoided. You should consult with an immunologist before receiving one.
