Dear  

As a father I need an advice, please read and say what should I do. I have doughter 4,5 years old. Before this year, she didnt be sick so often. Last march, she had fever over 38,5 and it lasted 5 days. We used agumentine,calpol,dolven and also wet towel to decrease fever. After 4-5 days, fever decreased to normal but our doctor wanted to see if her neutrophil count increase after infection. During infection, her neutrophil count was about 0,1 and 0,2. After finished antibiotic, her neutrofil was 0,5. Until march, only one time on 28 april, her neutrofil count was good (2,7). All the blood and genetic test results was clean and also neutrofil count in marrow was normal. The only problem is her neutrofil count on blood test, it cant be increased. I wrote neutrofil count history below. Our doctor wants to fallow still, he didnt give any special drug yet. if you specialist, please review the counts and tell me what should I do ?What may be this illness ?

    Hi Erkan,

    Neutrophils are the most abundant type of white blood cell. Your body produces white blood cells (leukocytes), which help fight bacterial infections, viruses and fungi. If your child has too few or too many white blood cells, in general, here's what it means:

    Low white blood cell count (leukopenia) means having too few leukocytes circulating in the blood

    A long-term low white blood cell count increases the risk of infections and may be caused by a number of different diseases and conditions.

    High white blood cell count (leukocytosis) means having too many leukocytes circulating in the blood, usually from having an infection.

    A number of different diseases and conditions may cause a long-term high white blood cell count.

    Neutropenia. Neutropenia (noo-troe-PEE-nee-uh) is a low number of neutrophils, a type of white blood cell that fights infections of fungi and bacteria. Neutropenia can be caused by cancer or by diseases, disorders or infections that damage bone marrow. In addition, certain medications and other diseases or conditions can cause neutropenia

    If you will share your country, I will see if I can locate a specialist in your country.

    kind regards

      Hi

      First of all, thanks for your response.

      We live in Ankara, the capital of Turkey. I'm worried about my daughter's healt. Our doctors follow her number of neutrophils periodicly, since march. Actually, I trust our doctors, but nobody can say what her illness, what cause of low neutrophils. I have to learn if our doctors missing anything.

      kind regards

    Hi Erkan,

    Find a Pediatric Hematologist

    A good place to look is at a medical school affiliated with a university.

    kind regards
