Clinical Information

  • Chemotherapy-Induced Febrile Neutropenia-. fever accompanied by a significant reduction in neutrophil count associated with chemotherapy.
  • Febrile Neutropenia-. fever accompanied by a significant reduction in the number of neutrophils.
  • Neutropenia-. a decrease in the number of neutrophils found in the blood.
  • Agranulocytosis-. a decrease in the number of granulocytes; (basophils; eosinophils; and neutrophils).
  • Feline Panleukopenia-. a highly contagious dna virus infection of the cat family, characterized by fever, enteritis and bone marrow changes. it is also called feline ataxia, feline agranulocytosis, feline infectious enteritis, cat fever, cat plague, and show fever. it is caused by feline panleukopenia virus or the closely related mink enteritis virus or canine parvovirus.
  • Leukopenia-. a decrease in the number of leukocytes in a blood sample below the normal range (leukocyte count less than 4000).
  • Neutrophils-. granular leukocytes having a nucleus with three to five lobes connected by slender threads of chromatin, and cytoplasm containing fine inconspicuous granules and stainable by neutral dyes.
  • Agranulocytosis-. a marked decrease in the number of mature granulocytes (most often neutrophils) in the peripheral blood.
  • Chemotherapy Related Agranulocytosis|Chemotherapy-Related Agranulocytosis-. agranulocytosis that occurs with chemotherapy.
  • Congenital Neutropenia|congenital neutropenia|genetic infantile agranulocytosis|infantile genetic agranulocytosis-. a rare congenital disorder characterized by mild or severe reduction of neutrophils in the peripheral blood and recurrent infantile infections.
  • Cyclic Neutropenia|CH|CN|Cyclic Agranulocytosis|Cyclic Hematopoiesis|Cyclic Hematopoiesis|Dysplasia, Myelocytic Periodic|Periodic Neutropenia|cyclic neutropenia|periodic neutropenia-. a hematologic disorder caused by a mutation in the elane (ela2) gene; clinical manifestations include recurrent neutropenia with resultant susceptibility to infection leading to fever.

Type 1 Excludes

Type 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.

Blood Disorders

Your blood is living tissue made up of liquid and solids. The liquid part, called plasma, is made of water, salts and protein. Over half of your blood is plasma. The solid part of your blood contains red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

Blood disorders affect one or more parts of the blood and prevent your blood from doing its job. They can be acute or chronic. Many blood disorders are inherited. Other causes include other diseases, side effects of medicines, and a lack of certain nutrients in your diet.

Types of blood disorders include:

  • Platelet disorders, excessive clotting, and bleeding problems, which affect how your blood clots
  • Anemia, which happens when your blood does not carry enough oxygen to the rest of your body
  • Cancers of the blood, such as leukemia and myeloma
  • Eosinophilic disorders, which are problems with one type of white blood cell.

Uncommon Infant and Newborn Problems

It can be scary when your baby is sick, especially when it is not an everyday problem like a cold or a fever. You may not know whether the problem is serious or how to treat it. If you have concerns about your baby's health, call your health care provider right away.

Learning information about your baby's condition can help ease your worry. Do not be afraid to ask questions about your baby's care. By working together with your health care provider, you make sure that your baby gets the best care possible.
