ABSOLUTE NEUTROPHIL COUNT
The absolute neutrophil count is increased in infections, a variety of inflammatory disorders, cytokine therapy and some myeloid neoplasms. Neutropenia can be seen with various medications, including chemotherapy, toxins, bone marrow replacement (eg., metastatic tumor, granulomas), myelodysplastic syndromes, autoimmune disorders, and congenital disorders. Generally, the degree of neutropenia defines the patient’s risk of infection.
