granulocytopenic

granulocytopenic

pertaining to or emanating from granulocytopenia.

granulocytopenic calf disease
disease characterized by petechiae and necrotic lesions in the alimentary tract. The lesions in the mouth lead to hypersalivation, those in the nasal cavities to a nasal discharge. The depression of bone marrow is manifested by neutropenia and thrombocytopenia, leading to serious and often fatal secondary infections. The cause is unknown. See also furazolidone, radiomimetic, radiation injury.

Since most CAUTIs are a symptomatic and do not result in urosepsis (13), it is difficult to justify antimicrobial therapy of asymptomatic bacteriuria other than for granulocytopenic or other severely immunocompromised patients, patients scheduled for urologic surgery, pregnant women, patients with Serratia CAUTI, or patients about to have their catheter removed.
