They also observed leucopenia
was present more frequently in P.

Igualmente, se plantea toma de hemocultivos en pacientes que requieren hospitalizacion en la UCI, pacientes con abuso de alcohol, asplenia, leucopenia
, derrame pleural, neumonia necrosante o influenza previa.
Bone marrow involvement causes suppression of normal hematopoiesis and consequent peripheral cytopenias, in our study there was a statistically significant difference in frequency of leucopenia
and thrombocytopenia in cases with and without marrow infiltration (table 1) pancytopenia was found in 7 cases (16.6%) with marrow infiltrates in contrast to 1 (2.4%) case with uninvolved marrow.
TPE was preferred in eight patients due to additional problems (leucopenia
in five patients and co-infection in three patients).
The word leucopenia
is often used interchangeably with neutropenia.
Secondary endpoints were one-year patient and graft survival, incidence of infections including CMV (PCR>1000 copies/ [micro]L), and the incidence of adverse events directly associated with ATG focused mainly on hematologic events (leucopenia
Laboratory examination showed grade II leucopenia
(WBC 1.12 x 3.3/[mm.sup.3]), grade IV neutropenia (neutrophils 0.23 x 103/[mm.sup.3]), grade III anemia (HGB 8.2 g/dl), and grade II thrombocytopenia (platelets 40 x 103/[mm.sup.3]).
We found no statistically significant association between any particular antimicrobial agents and leucopenia
Full blood count performed at our hospital revealed severe leucopenia
with a WBC count of 830/[micro]L (neutrophils 7/[micro]L, eosinophils 8/[micro]L, basophils 18/[micro]L, monocytes 378/[micro]L, and lymphocytes 415/[micro]L).
