Agranulocytosis means a failure of the bone marrow to make enough white blood cells (neutrophils). Bone marrow is the soft tissue inside bones that helps form blood cells.
Agranulocytosis is one cause of a person not having enough of a specific type of white blood cells, called neutrophils or granulocytes.
A low neutrophil count (neutropenia) may also occur when white blood cells are destroyed faster than they can be produced.
Persons with this condition are more likely to develop infections.
