While studying blood smears during the experimental production of eosinophilia,1 the authors observed that electrical stimulation caused marked alteration in the character of neutrophiles in the circulating capillary blood. This stimulation produced an increase in the percentage of young neutrophiles which was relative and absolute.
According to Arneth,2 the neutrophiles in the peripheral blood can be differentiated. He described several classes which are based on the theory of the successive development of a greater segmentation of the nucleus with age. Cooke and Ponder3 have simplified this classification by establishing five major groups or types; the first being the youngest, and
