The mission of the Chronic Granulomatous Disorder Society (CGD Society) is to be the leading source of support for individuals and families affected by chronic granulomatous disorder in the UK. They strive to achieve this by providing comprehensive and clearly written information on CGD and associated issues that is easily accessible through a variety of media; offering direct support to individuals and families affected by CGD through the provision of services and events; ensuring that essential financial assistance is available to support those affected by CGD in the UK; raising awareness and understanding of CGD within the medical profession in order to facilitate earlier diagnosis and promote increased understanding of the impacts of CGD on all medical disciplines, thereby extending and improving quality of life; supporting research that aims to identify better treatments and ultimately a cure for CGD, and the publication of the useful results of that research. Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is a rare inherited primary immune deficiency disorder that affects certain white blood corpuscles (neutrophils, monocytes, macrophages, eosinophils). The disorder is characterized by an inability to resist repeated infectious diseases and a tendency to develop chronic inflammation.
