I have never heard of these diseases, but after doing some research, this is what I found out:

Cyclic is more rare than congenital (aka chronic) neutropenia.  Cyclic occurs in cycles, or about every 21 days when the neutrophils are at their lowest.  This drop in neutrophils causes the body to be susceptible to things like mouth sores, fevers and bacterial infections.  Congenital neutropenia doesn't run in cycles as the neutrophils tend to be low on a continuous basis.  People with Congenital are more at risk of severe bacterial infections than in cyclic neutropenia.  Cyclic tends to respond well to treatment with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor.  Congenital is also treated with the same growth factor, but there is a 10-30% chance of it evolving into acute myeloid leukemia.  

I hope this helps.
