Answer

Symptom onset typically occurs at a young age, although the diagnosis has been at an older age in some patients. [15, 16, 17] Typically, patients with CGD have recurrent pyogenic infections that start in the first year of life. Occasionally, the onset may be delayed until the patient is aged 10-20 years.
