Glossary for Agranulocytosis

  • Amobarbital -- Teratogenic Agent: There is strong evidence to indicate that exposure to Amobarbital during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Anal ulcer: The occurrence of an ulcer that is located in the anatomical location of the anus
  • Aplastic anemia: A blood disorder where the bone marrow produces insufficient new blood cells.
  • Bacterial diseases: Diseases caused by a bacterial infection
  • Barth Syndrome: A rare genetic disorder where the body's cells are unable to make sufficient energy resulting in an accumulation in the body of 3-methylglutaconic acid. Type 2 is characterized by its affects on the heart.
  • Benzthiazide -- Teratogenic Agent: There is strong evidence to indicate that exposure to Benzthiazide during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Blood conditions: Conditions that affect the blood
  • Chemical poisoning -- Monosodium Methanarsenate: Monosodium Methanarsenate is a chemical used mainly as a herbicide or pesticide. Ingestion and other exposures to the chemical can cause various symptoms. The type and severity of symptoms varies depending on the amount of chemical involved and the nature of the exposure.
  • Chlorpropamide -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Chlorpropamide (an antidiabetic drug) during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Cohen Syndrome: A rare genetic disorder characterized by reduced muscle tone, obesity and prominent front teeth.
  • De Vaal syndrome: A rare condition characterized by the defective development of T-cells, B-cells, thrombocytes and granulocytes. Severe immunodeficiency results which leads to infant death unless a bone marrow transplant is performed.
  • Dubowitz Syndrome: A rare genetic and developmental disorder characterized by infantile eczema, small stature, microcephaly and peculiar facial features.
  • Dyskeratosis Congenita: A rare genetic disorder characterized by sking pigmentation abnormalities, nail dystrophy and mucous membrane changes.
  • Fever: Elevation of the body temperature above the normal 37 degrees celsius
  • Fungal infections: Any condition caused by fungus.
  • Gingival bleeding: bleeding from the gums
  • Granulocytopenia: Reduced number of granulocytes in the blood. Granulocytes are a type of white blood cell (neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils). White blood cells help protect the body from invading pathogen and hence act as the body's defense to infection.
  • Herbal Agent overdose -- Autumn Crocus: Autumn crocus can be used as a herbal agent to treat gout and rheumatoid conditions. The herbal agent contains chemicals such as colchicine and the ingestion of excessive amounts of this can result in symptoms. Severe overdose can result in death and chronic ingestion can also cause harmful effects.
  • Human granulocytic ehrlichiosis: A rare infectious condition caused by infection with a type of bacteria called Ehrlichia (Anaplasma phagocytophilia) which attack granulocytes (a type of white blood cell). The infection is transmitted by the deer and American dog tick.
  • Hypersplenism: A condition which is characterized by the exaggeration of blood degrading function of the spleen
  • Immune disorders: Disorders that affect the immune system
  • Immune symptoms: Symptoms affecting the immune system
  • Lassa fever: Infectious rat-borne West African disease.
  • Leukemia: Cancer of the blood cells, usually white blood cells.
  • Mouth ulcers: Ulcers in the mouth membranes or oral areas
  • Neutropenia: Reduced number of granulocytes in the blood
  • Osteoporosis: Bone thinning and weakening from bone calcium depletion.
  • Pneumonia: Infection of the lung by bacteria, viruses or fungus.
  • Reduced immune response: A reduced ability of the body to launch an immune response
  • Septicemia: A systemic inflammatory response to an infection.
  • Shwachman-Diamond Syndrome:
  • Sore throat: Discomfort in the throat or with swallowing
  • Viral diseases: Any disease that is caused by a virus
  • Visceral leishmaniasis: A condition which is characterized by an infection of the viscera by leishmaniasis
  • WHIM syndrome: A rare syndrome characterized by warts, hypogammaglobulinemia (low blood gammaglobulin levels), recurring bacterial infections and myelokathexis (form of neutropenia). It is a form of immunodeficiency disease caused by a mutation in a chemokine receptor.
