Presentation Description: Your patient is admitted with fever and neutropenia. What do you do with their PCP prophylaxis? You indentify a bug – how do you safely tailor therapy? What happens with persistent or recurrent fever? When is it safe to send them home? What is haematological recovery really? This Quick Hit covered these issues and others, incorporating discussion of the Satellite Blueprint Guidelines and clinical judgment.
