Figure 2: The number days of initial decrease/minimal level/final increase in monocyte and neutrophil count. X axis is the number days of initial decrease/minimal level/final increase in monocyte count, and Y axis is number days of initial decrease/minimal level/final increase in neutrophil count. The diagonal line indicates the number days of initial decrease/minimal level/final increase in monocyte count is identical with that in neutrophil count. The point above the diagonal line means the number days in neutrophil is more than that in monocyte. In another word, the point above the diagonal line indicates the occurrence of initial decrease/minimal level/final increase in one patient's monocyte count is prior to neutrophil count. (a) The number days of initial decrease in monocyte and neutrophil count. (b) The number days of minimal level in monocyte and neutrophil count. (c) The number days of final increase in monocyte and neutrophil count. Because our study was retrospective, if the time of blood collection was later than the time of first change in monocyte count, it would probably lead to some points on or below the diagonal line
