Chronic granulomatous disease is a rare disorder of neutrophil function that impairs the ability of phagocytes to react to infection and produces inflammatory lesions that may involve many organ systems. A young man recently presented with bilateral mid ureteral obstruction and renal insufficiency secondary to inflammation due to chronic granulomatous disease. To our knowledge, we believe this to be the only case of complete bilateral ureteral obstruction due to chronic granulomatous disease reported to date. A review of the disease, its pathogenesis and potential involvement of the urinary tract is presented.
