With the increasing incidence of this disease, it is natural that new terms should be used. The original name was agranulocytosis and the indices usually refer to it under this heading or as agranulocytic angina. Agranulocythemia and hypogranulocytosis are also used—the former as a synonym of agranulocytosis and the latter to mean a leukopenia but not a complete granulopenia. Malignant neutropenia and primary granulocytopenia are used in the same sense as agranulocytosis or complete granulopenia. Primary granulopenia is also used in the sense that the granulopenia does not result from any other disease. Two points need to be distinguished.
