Low neutrophil granulocytes - Definition


Definition


Neutrophil granulocytes are a type of white blood cell produced in the bone marrow that is serves as a defense mechanism against foreign bodies such as yeasts or bacteria. If the neutrophil granulocyte count decreases or is abnormally low, usually qualified at inferior to 1700 per millimeter cubed of blood, it is called neutropenia and can be caused by infection, medication, bone marrow disease, autoimmune disease, alcohol intoxication, or chemotherapy. The risk is that this will weaken the immune system and create a breeding ground for infection.
