Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Neutropenia is defined as an absolute neutrophil count (ANC) below 1500/mm(3) in the peripheral blood and is a common condition in childhood. In this study, underlying etiological causes and prognoses in children in follow-up due to neutropenia were analyzed to form a guide for physicians working in primary health care institutions.
