monocytosis (mon´ōsītō´sis),

n an increase in the number of monocytes in the peripheral bloodstream. Various limits are given (e.g., a total number in excess of 800/mm3, regardless of the percentage, or a total greater than 8% with the total number less than 800). It may be associated with chronic pyogenic infections, bacterial endocarditis, infectious hepatitis, monocytic leukemia, rickettsial disease, and protozoan infections.
