We present a term neonate with severe sepsis, presenting on day 10 of life. The neonate presented with bilateral purulent eye discharge and hepatosplenomegaly. On investigation, persistent leucocytosis was observed and thus the possibility of leucocyte adhesion defect was considered. Flow cytometry confirmed the diagnosis.
