Congenital Pelger-Huet anomaly is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by incomplete nuclear segmentation of neutrophils without functional disturbance. The morphology of these mature but hyposegmented neutrophils may be confused with that of immature neutrophils (bands), thereby suggesting bacterial infection. We experienced a case of congenital Pelger-Huët anomaly on routine hematologic examination in a 7-year old boy who was admitted because of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and known seizure disorder. And his father had congenital Pelger-Huet anomaly, also. Peripheral blood smear showed that 98% of the neutrophils had unsegmented nuclei, 2% had a bilobed nucleus. Phagocytic and chemotactic activity of patient and his father's neutrophils was normal.
Key Words: Congenital Pelger-Huet anomaly, Phagocytic and chemotactic activity of neutrophils
