Neutropenia Definition

Definition

Agranulocytosis is a condition that results from failure of an individual's bone marrow to produce a sufficient quantity of white blood cells, or increased destruction of the white blood cells. As a result, the white blood cell count will be low. Acquired agranulocytosis occurs most often as a result of medications or treatments. A congenital agranulocytosis is a condition that someone is born with. Agranulocytosis usually responds well to treatment, so contact your doctor if you think you may have this condition.
