This chapter describes the myeloid cells of the peripheral blood: neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, and monocytes. It describes their basic physiology and important disease states associated with defects of each of these entities. Each of these cells arise from a common bone marrow myeloid progenitor to differentiate into their unique types.
