The characteristic eosinophil percentages in this study in a presumed normal free-ranging population may have been a response to parasitism, specifically involving gastrointestinal parasites, (21,33,34) or exposure to foreign antigens in a delayed hypersensitivity reaction, (22,24) (eg, involving an acute infection with a Mycoplasma species).
The patient presented in the Emergency Department four hours later and similar full blood count results were obtained, where eosinophils accounted for 46% of the total white cell count.
Increases in the eosinophils of the bone marrow in pancytopenia patients due to the drugs they must take causes a decrease in hematopoiesis in the erythroid, myeloid and megakaryocytic series and the hypocellular bone marrow.

The finding in mice showed that a well-known immune cell called the eosinophil [ee-oh-SIN-oh-fil] carries out the beneficial role in two ways - by clearing out cellular debris from damaged tissue and teaming up with a type of cell that can make fat to instead trigger muscle regrowth.
