Definition

A form of specific granule deficiency, an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by recurrent pyogenic infections, defective neutrophil chemotaxis and bactericidal activity, and lack of neutrophil secondary granule proteins. SGD2 is due to defective neutrophil development. Bone marrow findings include hypercellularity, abnormal megakaryocytes, and features of progressive myelofibrosis with blasts. Some patients may have additional findings, including delayed development, mild dysmorphic features, and distal skeletal anomalies.
