We describe the spectrum of radiologic appearances of hepatic abscesses in patients with chronic granulomatous disease (CGD), a hereditary immunodeficiency presenting in childhood that occurs at a rate of 1 in 200,000-250,000 live births and predisposes patients to infection with catalase-positive organisms. CONCLUSION: Hepatic abscesses in patients with CGD show an atypical radiologic appearance compared with sporadic hepatic abscesses, and they are characterized by homogeneous enhancement and multiseptal enhancement. In the appropriate clinical setting, the appearance of an enhancing mass should suggest the possibility of a CGD-related hepatic abscess
