Appendectomy in a child with cyclic neutropenia in profound neutropenic episode

, : Appendectomy in a child with cyclic neutropenia in profound neutropenic episode. Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management 11: 1217-1219

Our experience in the treatment of a 4-year-old boy with cyclic neutropenia who was admitted for urgent appendectomy is described. The postoperative course was uneventful with high daily doses of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor and antimicrobial therapy. The purpose of this report is to highlight the importance of immediate appendectomy in neutropenic patients, wherein low absolute neutrophil count should not be considered as a contraindication for urgent surgical procedure.

Background: Although gastro-oesophageal reflux is a recognised cause of chronic cough, the role of oesophageal dysmotility is unknown. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of abnormal oesophageal motility in a selected group of pa...
