What is leukopenia?

Leukopenia is a condition in which the number of leukocytes (white blood cells) in the blood is reduced. Many medical conditions, especially infections, cause reduced counts. It may also be associated with nutritional deficiencies, certain medications and medical treatments (i.e. radiation therapy).

Reports may be affected by other conditions and/or medication side effects. We ask about general symptoms (anxious mood, depressed mood, fatigue, pain, and stress) regardless of condition.
