Other381 varieties—the eosinophiles, lymphocytes, etc.—are less mobile and have still less marked phagocytic properties.
eosinophiles are formed in the bone-marrow from eosinophilic myelocytes.
This would explain the rle of the eosinophiles in the black-fly lesion.
Very constant also is a marked absolute, and often a relative, increase of eosinophiles and basophiles.
The completeness and rapidity of the breaking down depends on the number of eosinophiles present.
