CGD is an inherited (X chromosomal or autosomal recessive) primary immunodeficiency regarding functional disturbance of phagocytes which lead to the severe recurrent bacterial and fungal infection observed since birth. Manifestations of CGD including central nervous system are less common. This case report emphasizes the diagnostic and therapeutic problems in boy aged 18 with CGD who developed craniopharyngioma. There are no reports, to our knowledge, considering a coexistence of CGD and craniopharyngioma in children in the available literature.
