The first step is meticulous examination of peripheral blood count values to make the initial crucial distinction between single cytopenia
such as anaemia, low white count or reduced platelets, in contrast to pancytopenia in which all the levels are subnormal or pancytopenia is a problem.
6,7) The cytopenias
may develop before the diagnosis of Sjogren's syndrome, and sicca symptoms may not be the predominant manifestation.
In conclusion, although the criteria of familial HLH were not appropriate for IAHS, in patients with infection and progression of hepatosplenomegaly and cytopenia
, the diagnosis of IAHS should be kept in mind.
The MDS are clonal disorders of haematopoietic stem cells characterized by ineffective haematopoiesis leading to blood cytopenias
and by high incidence of progression to acute myeloid leukemia (AML) (18).

24-29 Colonoscopy examination is usually contraindicated due to risks associated with cytopenia
, bleeding, and the potential risk of gut perforation.
These adverse effects include nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, pain, infections, cytopenia

In dogs and cats, neutropenia is the most common cytopenia
associated with chemotherapy-induced myelosuppression.
HLH is a severe inflammatory and aggressive condition, characterized by high fever, hepatosplenomegaly, lymphadenopathy and cytopenia
