Abstract

We conducted a retrospective study of neonatal leukocytosis induced by prostaglandin E(1). Among 45 neonates with congenital heart disease, leukocyte counts increased during PGE(1) infusion. We conclude that PGE(1) infusion is a predictable cause of leukocytosis in newborns with congenital heart disease.
