Symptoms of leukopenia


Leukopenia can cause several symptoms, which usually show up in severe cases, while they are hardly perceptible in mild cases.

Early symptoms are general discomfort, fatigue, weakness, dizziness, loss of appetite, and irritability. As the disease progresses, other symptoms can appear, such as vertigo and frequent headaches. A usual sign of leukopenia, in any of its stages, is the presence of bacterial infections.

In severe cases, fever usually appears, together with ganglion swelling, pneumonia, stomatitis (appearance of ulvers in the gums and inside of the mouth) and thrombocytopenia (diminution of platelets in the blood to a quantity lower than that considered normal). In very severe cases, liver abscesses can also occur.

In women, in addition, leukopenia can cause menorrhagia, abundant and unusually long periods, as well as metrorrhagia, uterus bleedings not caused by menstruation.
