[Cyclic neutropenia: a disease or a syndrome?].


Peripheral blood and bone marrow morphology, blood and bone marrow lymphocyte subpopulation composition were studied in two children with cyclic neutropenia, using flow cytofluorometry, monoclonal antibodies, colony-forming capacity of granulocytic macrophagal precursors in semi-fluid agar. The studies were conducted in varying periods of the neutropenic cycle. Differences were revealed in immunohematologic parameters and clinical course of neutropenia in the two patients. The analysis of the literature data and the authors' own observations of the patients with cyclic neutropenia permitted a suggestion on high heterogeneity of pathogenetic mechanisms of this disease.
