what happen when monocytes reached to zero level?
- Anonymous9 years agoFavorite Answer
Low monocyte counts generally do not cause specific symptoms. It is most likely that the signs of some type of an infection will be noticed by someone suffering from a low monocyte blood count. The symptoms of the infection will then trigger a visit to the doctor. Frequent signs of these types of infections include flu-like symptoms, coughing, sore throat, chills and fever, and frequent urination.

If it's a temporary finding in only one blood smear, it's not significant. You can have 0-1 monocytes in any random blood smear. If you consistently get zero monocytes in blood smear after blood smear, week after week, then that's a failure of the erythropoetic system to produce them. The cause would have to be explored and identified, if possible.

Monocytes form macrophage after maturation which help in phagocytosis. Thus, when monocytes reach to zero level immunity decreases and there will be decrease in phagocytosis.
