The article presents a case report involving a 23-year-old man with neutropenia and a history of warts. Microscopic examination of the bone marrow is presented. It describes the characteristics of WHIM syndrome as an autosomal disorder from various microorganisms present in warts, hypogammaglobulinemia, and myelokathexis. Furthermore, evaluation should be considered in patients with current infections.
