By some analysis of the neutral operator and an application of the fixed-point index theorem, we obtain sufficient conditions for the existence, multiplicity and nonexistence of periodic solutions to a second-order differential equation with the prescribed neutral operator, which improve and extend some recent results of Lu-Ge, Wu-Wang, and Zhang. An example is given to illustrate our results. Moreover, the analysis of the generalized neutral operator will be helpful for other types of differential equations.
