  • By messenger RNA and DNA analysis (with an FcRIII-cDNA probe and restriction endonucleases) the neutrophil-FcRIII deficiency appeared to be due to deletion of the FcRIII-1 gene in both individuals, while the FcRIII-2 gene was normally present.[bloodjournal.org]

  • This first- reported case of ophthalmia neonatorum associated with isoimmune neonatal neutropenia is presented to show the need for medical workup for underlying predisposing disease.[healio.com]
  • INITIAL CLINICAL APPROACH Because the severity and the cause of neutropenia may often be fatal in this patient population and because of the limitations of blood volume available for laboratory testing, a prompt but logical approach to the workup is essential[mhmedical.com]
  • Obtaining a history of infections may aid in the current diagnostic workup. Obtaining a careful drug history may reveal the offending agent and spare the patient from an extensive diagnostic workup.[odlarmed.com]
  • But the peripheral blood smear remains the mainsail of these patient workups.[captodayonline.com]
  • These findings are consistent with the proposal that because of the presence of Fc gamma RIII receptors, HeLa cells facilitate infectivity and thus block neutralization through the uptake of an IgG2b-chlamydia complex. Paper-7567822 .[ihop-net.org]

  • Laboratory testing is important in determining the etiologic agent and appropriate treatment. The absolute neutrophil count (ANC) is usually greater than 1.5 ? 109/L There is a risk of serious infection when the ANC drops below 0.5 ? 109/L.'[healio.com]
