Abstract

Isolated neutropenia without anemia or thrombocytopenia is a common clinical problem. The etiology of neutropenia may vary from transient bone marrow suppression, caused by self-limited viral illnesses, to previously undiagnosed congenital syndromes or serious systemic diseases. Consequently, determining the underlying cause of neutropenia and what treatment is required can be challenging. Acquired neutropenia is common and most of the times an etiologic factor can be found. Congenital neutropenia (CN) is rare, and we still have a lot to learn from mutational analysis as to the exact role of gene abnormalities in the pathogenesis of these complex diseases. This mini-review discusses a proposed approach to neutropenia in the adult patient.
