Neonatal sepsis is a clinical syndrome of systemic disease due to infection occurring within the first month of life. Diagnosis of this disease is still a challenge, especially in developing countries. Therefore, other diagnostic tools, such as examination of eosinophil counts or percentage, should be considered by clinicians. Based on that, the purpose of this research is to know the picture of eosinophil percentage in patient of neonatal sepsis in RSUD dr. M. Haulussy Ambon from January 2016 to August 2017. The approach used in this research is descriptive research using secondary data from the medical record data. The number of samples obtained in this study were 30 neonates that were taken by total sampling technique. The results showed that subjects who experienced eosinopenia, with cut-off point less than 0,78%, were 10 subjects (33.3%), while 20 people (66.7%) did not experience it. Thus, it can be concluded that patients with neonatal sepsis in RSUD Dr. M. Haulussy who do not experience eosinopenia is more dominant than patients who experience eosinopenia.
