Severe ctl neutrop'?: Do you mean severe congenital neutropenia (scn)? I am not sure what 9a stands for. Thus far we have the following gene mutations known for scn, ela2 (sporadic*); gfi1, csf3r (ad); was (xl); hax1 (ar). Ad stands for autosomal domiant, xl, x linked, and ar autosomal recessive. Please clarify what you mean by 9a.
