Info Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD) Mechanism?

why chronic granulomatous disease only causes catalase positive bacteria infection? I thought no matter CGD or normal, catalase positive could always survive under H2O2.... I've read some reference in merck and wiki but unsatisfied.
Anybody knows the mechanism? Thanks so much.
