Graphic representation of platelet slopes from representative patients in a CGD cohort who died or survived to end of followup in a cohort of CGD patientsThe image depicts platelet slopes from patients in a CGD cohort who (a) died and (b) survived to end of follow-up. Hepatic involvement and portal hypertension predict mortality in chronic granulomatous disease.

Graph: Survival function estimate with cohort of CGD patients for each of the determinants of mortality based on the Cox proportional hazards modelEstimate of the survival function in a cohort of CGD patients for each of the determinants of mortality based on the Cox proportional hazards model. The curves compare the survival estimates for patients with and without a) declining platelet slope b) ALP elevations and c) a history of liver abscess. Each curve is adjusted for all factors in the multivariable Cox model. d) This figure compares the survival function for patients with all three determinants of mortality with that for patients with none of these factors. Hepatic involvement and portal hypertension predict mortality in chronic granulomatous disease.
