Dear all,
I have a 24 day neonate in my care, who may have LAD.She still has her umbilical cord attatched, has an inolent infected bulla on her thigh with no local signs of inflammation,but with a neutrophilic leukemoid blood picture. (cultures have grown staph.aureus too.)
I work in a place called Calicut, Kerala state in India & I wanted practical advice regarding how to proceed further in coming to a diagnosis here.
Thanx in advance.
