Chapter 10 of the book "Hematology in Practice" is presented. It recalls the physiology and function of granulocytes. It offers an overview of white cell disorders, specific terminology relating to quantitative white cell changes, and the stages of white cell phagocytosis. It describes toxic changes in white cells, hypersegmentation, and some hereditary white cell disorders. It discusses sources of reactive lymphocytosis and the effect of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) on hematology parameters.
