Abstract

Neutropenia is uncommon but a very challenging problem in medicine. It remains a well-known risk factor for the development of infection while conversely neutropenia can be caused by infection or its treatment. The issue is discussed in the paper with respect to different patient populations, medical intervention, and life situations.
