(英) Management of tooth extraction in a patient with ELANE gene mutation-induced cyclic neutropenia: A case report.
(英) Cyclic neutropenia (CyN) is a rare hematological disease, and patients with CyN often experience an early onset of severe periodontitis and are forced to undergo tooth extraction. Here, we report a case of a patient with CyN who showed different periodicity and oscillations of neutrophil count compared with her mother, despite sharing the same novel genetic mutation. A 17-year-old Japanese girl who had been diagnosed with CyN shortly after birth presented to our hospital with a complaint of mobility of her teeth and gingivitis. Upon presentation, an intraoral examination was performed and revealed redness and swelling of the marginal and attached gingiva. Radiographs revealed extreme resorption of the alveolar bone and apical lesions in her mandibular lateral incisors. The patient's hematologic data demonstrated a lack of blood neutrophils (0/μL). The patient had no history of dental extraction, and her mother also had a history of CyN. The patient was diagnosed with severe periodontitis that was associated with CyN. Gene testing showed a novel heterozygous mutation in exon 4 of the ELANE gene (c.538delC, p.Leu180Ser fsX11). Based on the clinical findings, we planned to extract the patient's mandibular lateral incisors. Although the tooth extraction was scheduled considering the cyclic variation in neutrophil count, the patient's neutrophil count was 0/μL on the day before the planned extraction. Therefore, granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) was administered to increase the patient's neutrophil count. On the day of the patient's admission for the tooth extraction, she presented with fever (body temperature, 38.5°C), tonsillitis, and stomatitis. The extraction was subsequently delayed, and the patient was administered antibiotics and G-CSF for 4 days. At this time, the neutrophil count increased to 750/μL, and the tooth extraction was carried out safely. The postoperative course was uneventful, and the healing process at the extraction site was excellent. There is a possibility that the periodicity and oscillations of neutrophil count may change with growth in patients with CyN. Therefore, it is important to frequently examine and treat patients with fluctuating neutrophil levels for the management of invasive dental treatment in patients with CyN.
