Reversal of radiation-induced neutropenia by granulocyte colony-stimulating factor.
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 colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF). We suggest that G-CSF be considered as supportive care in patients in whom neutropenia develops during radiotherapy.
