Infections in the immunocompromised person may occur in the clinical setting of neutropenia, B-cell and T-cell deficiencies, immunoglobulin deficiencies, complement deficiencies, and leukocyte dysfunction. Some patients have multiple defects due to both the underlying disease and its treatment. Patients with neutropenia are at higher risk for infections with Pseudomonas species, gram-positive cocci, Enterobacteriaceae, and Candida and Aspergillus species.
