Abstract

Neonatal neutropenia is a common laboratory finding noted on the complete blood cell count of neonates in the intensive care unit. Neonatal neutropenia has various causes, ranging from maternal conditions to congenital syndromes to immune-mediated processes. However, not all neonatal neutropenia is clinically relevant; it often does not increase the risk of infection. In this review, we will discuss neutrophil function and development, review the causes of neonatal neutropenia, and describe their clinical relevance, evaluation, and management options.
