Abstract

The case of a seven-month old infant with symptomatic autoimmune corticoresistant neutropenia is reported. Neutropenia was responsive to high-dose, iv immunoglobulin, and both to iv and im anti-Rh(D) immunoglobulin. The latter therapy has a high benefit-cost ratio compared to the standard approach.
