Answer

United States

The exact incidence of chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is unknown. Analysis of data submitted to a national registry suggests that the incidence of CGD in the United States is about 1 case per 200,000-250,000 population (as many as 20 patients with CGD are born each year), with no apparent racial or ethnic predilection.
