The symptoms for neutrophilia are presented and a result from the underlying condition that have caused it. As laboratory results would show that there is increase of neutrophils level in the blood (> 7500/ mm3). Here are the signs and symptoms of neutrophilia:
Monocytes, the largest type of WBCs, share the "vacuum cleaner" ( phagocytosis ) function of neutrophils, but are much longer lived as they have an extra role: they present pieces of pathogens to T cells so that the pathogens may be recognized again and killed. This causes an antibody response to be mounted. Monocytes eventually leave the bloodstream and become tissue macrophages , which remove dead cell debris as well as attack microorganisms. Neither dead cell debris nor attacking microorganisms can be dealt with effectively by the neutrophils. Unlike neutrophils, monocytes are able to replace their lysosomal contents and are thought to have a much longer active life. They have the kidney shaped nucleus and are typically agranulated. They also possess abundant cytoplasm.
