Neutropenic enterocolitis is a potentially life-threatening complication of malignancies and also the other neutropenic conditions. It characterized by typically clinical course of fever, diarrhoea and abdominal pain that may be localized to the right lower quadrant with radiological evidence of ileocecal inflamation. We present a case of an 9-year-old girl with neutropenic enterocolitis who managed successfully by medical treatment and show radiological findings consistent with enterocolitis.
