leukocytosis

 [loo″ko-si-to´sis]
a transient increase in the number of leukocytes in the blood, due to various causes.
basophilic leukocytosis basophilia (def. 1).
eosinophilic leukocytosis eosinophilia (def. 1).
mononuclear leukocytosis mononucleosis.
neutrophilic leukocytosis neutrophilia.
pathologic leukocytosis that due to some morbid condition, such as infection or trauma.
physiologic leukocytosis that caused by nonpathologic factors such as strenuous exercise.

neu·tro·phil·i·a

(nū'trō-fil'ē-ă),
An increase of neutrophilic leukocytes in blood or tissues; also frequently used synonymously with leukocytosis, inasmuch as the latter is generally the result of an increased number of neutrophilic granulocytes in the circulating blood (or in the tissues, or both). N. is usually absolute, that is, there is an increase in the total number of leukocytes as well as an increased percentage of neutrophils; in some instances, neutrophilia may be relative (that is, there is an increased percentage of neutrophils), but the total number of all types of leukocytes may be within the normal range.

neutrophilia

Granulocytic leukocytosis Hematology An absolute neutrophil count of > 8,000/mm3, which may be physiologic or pathologic. See Hereditary neutrophilia, Physiologic neutrophilia. Cf Neutropenia.

neu·tro·phil·i·a

(nū'trō-fil'ē-ă)
An increase of neutrophils in blood or tissues.

neutrophilia

An increased number of NEUTROPHIL white cells (leucocytes) in the blood. This is often an indication of an infection somewhere in the body.

neu·tro·phil·i·a

(nū'trō-fil'ē-ă)
An increase of neutrophils in blood or tissues.
