Chéiak-Higashi syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterised by partial oculocutaneous albinism, frequent pyogenic infections and abnormal large lysosomal granules in leukocytes and other granule containing cells. We experienced a case of Chéiak-Higashi syndrome in a twenty days old male who show-ed partial albinism, recurrent infections and characteristic abnormal large granules in granuloc-ytes on peripheral blood smear and bone marrow biopsy. A review of literatures were also presented briefly.
