BACKGROUND: This study examined the incidence, outcome and risk factors of neutropenia in infants with hemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN). METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed on infants with HDN. RESULTS: Of 69 evaluable infants, 45% developed neutropenia. Only one infectious complication was recorded. In most instances the neutropenia resolved spontaneously, but in seven infants it persisted for a median of 397 days. Males were at higher risk for developing neutropenia, but severity of HDN, antibody specificity, or therapy were not significant risk factors. CONCLUSIONS: Neutropenia is a common feature of HDN, regardless of severity of disease, treatment received, or antibody specificity. Pediatr Blood Cancer © 2011 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
