Abstract

The term "congenital neutropenia" signifies neutropenia that is present at birth. It includes a wide variety of disorders, some transient and others life long. Some varieties of congenital neutropenia are mild, with blood neutrophil concentrations below normal but not low enough to constitute a significant host defense deficiency. Other varieties of congenital neutropenia are characterized by low blood neutrophil concentrations and a predisposition to repeated infections.
