55 Possible Causes for Increased Susceptibility to Infections, Neutrophil Count Decreased, Recurrent Otitis Media

  • Shwachman Syndrome

    Affected individuals with neutropenia may also have additional abnormalities believed to result from an increased susceptibility to infections.[] There may be decreased numbers of neutrophils (the white blood cell that helps fight infection), platelets( the blood cell that helps clot the blood), or red blood cells.[] otitis media, mastoiditis, and two episodes of pneumonia.[]

  • Congenital Neutropenia

    Congenital neutropenia is characterized by a decrease in the absolute number of circulating neutrophils and an increased susceptibility to infections.[] The peripheral blood showed a markedly decreased absolute neutrophil count, and the bone marrow findings revealed maturation arrest of myeloid precursors at the promyelocyte[] Herein, we describe two siblings with SCN born from consanguineous parents who were referred for complaints of recurrent cutaneous infections, gingivitis, purulent otitis[]

  • Agammaglobulinemia

    Neither increased susceptibility to infections nor agammaglobulinemia have been described as a manifestation of terminal 14q32.33 deletion.[] ., in addition to giardiasis) are typical for agammaglobulinemia patients, and recurrent otitis media is described in the vast majority of cases.[] […] nine months 4 A 9-month-old boy who has had recurrent otitis media and pneumococcal pneumonia in the past three months 5 A 7-month-old boy who has had recurrent pneumococcal[]

  • Cartilage Hair Hypoplasia

    CONCLUSIONS: Humoral immunity is impaired in CHH and contributes to the increased susceptibility to infections.[] The defect in colony formation did not correlate with the haemoglobin concentration, platelet count or neutrophil count.[] Here, we present a case of CHH with mild skeletal changes and immunological findings associated with recurrent otitis media, neutropenia, and lymphopenia.[]

  • Kostmann Syndrome

    Bacterial infections, recurrent Frequent bacterial infections Increased susceptibility to bacterial infections Recurrent major bacterial infections [ more ] 0002718 Thrombocytosis[] Autosomal recessive KS, as described by Kostmann, has a neutrophil count less than 200 cells per microliter.[] […] bacterial infections (e.g. otitis media, pneumonia, sinusitis, urinary tract infections, abscesses of skin and/or liver) and increased promyelocytes in the bone marrow.[]

  • Cyclic Neutropenia

    susceptibility to infections and, in certain conditions, an icreased rate of malignancies and autoimmune disorders.[] The peak neutrophil count gradually decreased as pregnancy advanced, resulting in the disappearance of its cyclicity.[] G-CSF treatment was initiated at an age of 2 years after recurrent otitis media, pneumonia and skin abscesses.[]

  • Idiopathic Neutropenia

    Moderate neutropenia is well tolerated by otherwise healthy individuals, but may be associated with an increased susceptibility to infections in patients suffering from comorbidities[] Peri-operative G-CSF therapy in patients with chronic idiopathic neutropenia is effective in increasing the total neutrophil count, and decreasing infection complications.[] The girl had experienced frequent upper respiratory tract infections, tonsilitis and recurrent otitis media.[]

  • Acute Otitis Media

    This increased susceptibility is likely due to the younger infant and child’s shorter eustachian tube, its horizontal position, their limited exposure to both bacterial and[] All his symptoms and absolute neutrophil counts were recovered within 7 days after admission.[] This study evaluated the quality of life in children with recurrent acute otitis media aged less than 24 months.[]

  • Familial Neutropenia

    Consequently, although a neutrophil count of 1.5 x 10 3 /uL has been conventionally considered the threshold below which increased susceptibility to infections is incurred[] O f t hese, 12 articles described patients with benign ethnic neutropenia whose neutrophil count decreased during treatment with clozapine.[] Other features include anemia, thrombocytopenia, developmental and mental retardation, diarrhea, failure to thrive, and recurrent otitis media and pneumonia.[]

  • Immunodeficiency Type 23

    susceptibility to infection.[] […] blood lymphocyte number Low lymphocyte number [ more ] 0001888 Neutropenia Low blood neutrophil count Low neutrophil count [ more ] 0001875 Recurrent respiratory infections[] , chronic otitis externa, recurrent otitis media, or both; RSV, respiratory syncytial virus; sinopulmonary, recurrent sinopulmonary infections; s/p, status post; SSTI, recurrent[]
