Immature neutrophils can make their way to the tumor tissue and make the microenvironment immune-suppressive.
(1) Histiocytoid Sweet syndrome (HSS) is a rare histological variant of acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, which is distinguished by dermal infiltration with histiocytoid mononuclear cells, thought to be immature neutrophils.

Indeed, severe posttraumatic inflammation induces a boost in the release of banded and immature neutrophils into the circulation, leading to bone marrow exhaustion and a compromised immune response, both associated with a poor outcome [21, 23, 24].
Some authors have calculated the I:T ratio taking into account all the immature neutrophils including band form and obtained the ratio with mature to total neutrophil count, many authors have calculated by taking only the band neutrophil: Total neutrophil ratio wherein only the band neutrophils were considered in the numerator of the ratio.
Immature neutrophils (called blasts, bands or stabs) are not as effective as mature neutrophils.
The presence of immature neutrophils in the bloodstream is therefore an indication that the body is responding to inflammation, infection, or another stimulus to the bone marrow.
