A patient was referred for consideration of radical surgery in the presence of chronic neutropenia. We report the successful maintenance of an adequate neutrophil count during the perioperative period using Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (GCSF), resulting in successful primary healing of the wounds in the absence of infective complications. The use of GCSF in gynecology is briefly reviewed.
