Q1. What is neutropenia?

Neutropenia is a condition in which the neutrophil cells get lowered in blood. Neutrophil cells are the type of white blood cells which helps to fight against infections in the body.

Neutrophils play a very important role in the body’s defense mechanism against infections. An absence or scarcity of neutrophils (a condition called neutropenia) makes a person vulnerable to infection.

Q2. What is the normal range of neutrophils?

The normal range is 1.5 to 8.0 (1,500 to 8,000/mm³).

Q3. What percentage of neutrophil is normal?

A range between 38% and 80% of the WBC. The percentage is often increased during an infection (bacterial or viral). A low number (neutropenia) increases the risk of bacterial infection.

Q4. Common causes of neutropenia?

Neutropenia may be caused by numerous medical conditions including:
