Neutropenia Symptoms

Neutropenia can go undetected, but is generally discovered when a patient has developed severe infections or sepsis.

Some common infections can take an unexpected course in neutropenic patients; formation of pus, for example, can be notably absent, as this requires circulating neutrophil granulocytes.

Some common symptoms of neutropenia include fevers and frequent infections.

These infections can result in conditions such as mouth ulcers, diarrhea, a burning sensation when urinating, unusual redness, pain, or swelling around a wound, or a sore throat.
