Brief Answer:
Inherited immunodeficiency disease.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD) is an inherited primary immunodeficiency disease (PIDD) which increases the body's susceptibility to infections caused by certain bacteria and fungi. Granulomas are masses of immune cells that form at sites of infection or inflammation. The joint pain and raised crp and ANA are suggestive of an autoimmune disorder.
Basilar atelectasis s a complete or partial collapse of a lung or lobe of a lung — develops when the tiny air sacs (alveoli) within the lung become deflated. This can be related to an infection or inflammation.
I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you good health.

I am a 21 year old girl, developed lymph node enlargement in right axilla and right supraclavicular region in april 2011, was diagnosed as tuberculous lymphadenitis by FNAC , started on ATT( anti tuberculosis treatment ) but after 10 days of treatment , i had a severe reaction and developed stevens Johnson syndrome . Since 1 year, i am recovering from stevens Johnson syndrome. Since 9 months i am taking ayurvedic medicines for tubercular lymphadenitis, the lymph nodes have enlarged a little, they are hard. I have no evening rise of temperature. My appetite is fine now but i had weight loss since mid- 2010 as i was on poor diet. I am anaemic. I want to know what the treatment should be now to get rid of lymph node enlargement as i am very scared to take ATT again ? is there any other form or regime of treatment in ayurveda or homeopathy, etc ? is there any possibility that the reaction (stevens Johnson syndrome) occured because i had been suffering from infection by some other bacteria and not mycobacterium tuberculosis ?? please help ! awaiting a quick response ??
