The minute neutrophile granules of the polymorphonuclear leucocytes are often very scanty, and sometimes apparently absent.
polymorphonuclear leukocytosis, when present, is due to some complication.
The granules of the polymorphonuclear leucocytes stain oxyphile.
It is less common, and is rarely so marked as a polymorphonuclear leukocytosis.
The polymorphonuclear leukocytes are taken as the type of the group, because they are by far the most numerous.
The polymorphonuclear leucocytes are large cells, about 20µ; no definite granules can be observed.
The granules of the cells corresponding to the polymorphonuclear leucocytes are rod-shaped, often beaded or with clubbed ends.
The polymorphonuclear leucocytes have only a few very minute coccal-shaped oxyphile granules, the nucleus is polymorphous.
polymorphonuclear leukocytes are formed in the bone-marrow from neutrophilic myelocytes.
The decrease affects chiefly the polymorphonuclear cells, so that the lymphocytes are relatively increased.
polymorphonuclear pol·y·mor·pho·nu·cle·ar (pŏl'ē-môr'fə-nōō'klē-ər, -nyōō'-)
Having a lobed nucleus. Used especially of neutrophil white blood cells.
