is measured at the 5th, 10th, 15th and 30th minutes.
Mean absolute neutrophil count
(ANC) at day 1 3 months and 6 months showed increasing pattern (table 2).
The revised monitoring guidelines are as follows: Before starting treatment, patients must have a baseline white blood cell (WBC) count and an absolute neutrophil count
An otolaryngologic consultation was initiated because these patients continued to experience 1) a persistent fever despite broad-spectrum antimicrobial therapy and 2) signs or symptoms localized to the nose or sinuses during a period of neutropenia, particularly an absolute neutrophil count
(ANC) of less than 1,000/[mm.

Having haematological malignancy or non-albicans candida species, being in shock, having an absolute neutrophil count
of less than 500, and not receiving timely antifungal agents were significantly associated with higher risk of mortality.

Patients were investigated for complete blood count (CBC) including hemoglobin, (Hb), total leucocytes count (TLC), differential leucocytes count (DLC), absolute neutrophil count
(ANC) and platelet count (Plt).
Pancytopenia is a malady in which there is lessening of all the three cellular elements of blood;prevailing when the hemoglobin (Hb) less than 10g%, absolute neutrophil count
(ANC) less than 1.
The formulation of the leucocytes was interesting, with an absolute neutrophil count

Lab results revealed pancytopenia: the patient's serum white blood cell (WBC) was 900/mcL, the absolute neutrophil count
(ANC) was 447/mcL, and the absolute lymphocyte count was 346/mcL.
In contrast, no significant differences were detected between the noninfected group and controls for sE-selectin, total leukocyte count, absolute neutrophil count
, or platelet counts (P = .
Both the total lymphocyte count and the absolute neutrophil count
followed a similar trend of increasing noticeably in the second week.
