Reversal of radiation‐induced neutropenia by granulocyte colony‐stimulating factor

Academic Article


  • Myelosuppression is a common sequelae of radiotherapy, occasionally delaying the completion of treatment. In this report, we describe successful reversal of radiation‐induced neutropenia in a child receiving craniospinal irradiation by granulocyte colonystimulating factor (G‐CSF). We suggest that G‐CSF be considered as supportive care in patients in whom neutropenia develops during radiotherapy. © 1992 Wiley‐Liss, Inc. Copyright © 1992 Wiley‐Liss, Inc., A Wiley Company
