What does it mean when you have low neutrophils

The cell count standard for neutropenia in a child depends on the child's age, notes Mayo Clinic. Adults with fewer than approximately 500 cells per microliter of blood have extreme neutropenia, meaning their normal digestive system and mouth bacteria can cause them to have infections. Causes of neutropenia include diseases and drugs that damage bone marrow or kill neutrophils, such as cancer, hepatitis, diuretics and antibiotics.
