Answer

A complete blood (CBC) cell count is performed in patients with neutropenia or who are immunosuppressed.

A CD4 count and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) test are performed in patients with risk factors for HIV.

A collagen disorder workup (eg, antinuclear antibody [ANA], anti-dsDNA) may be performed based on the underlying disease.
