Impaired neutrophil function in intestinal lymphangiectasia

Impaired neutrophil function in intestinal lymphangiectasia.

Editor's note: Though this is an old article, I am including it in our database as it appears to be a one of a kind reference article.

J Clin Pathol. 1986 August; 39(8): 876–880.


Impaired neutrophil chemotaxis and phagocytosis were shown in three patients with intestinal lymphangiectasia. Abnormalities in cell associated and serum derived activity occurred, and possible mechanisms are suggested.
