Basophilia is often seen in relatively complex hematological pictures in which also basophils mostly are involved and may present themselves in an unpredictable way. In this case only a mild basophilia of 0.175 x 109/L was present, but clearly showed where to expect basophils in CELL-DYN Ruby scatterplots.


Non-malignant conditions associated with mild to moderate basophilia include hypothyroidism, IgE-mediated hypersensitivity reactions, inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis, and some viral infections. Basophilia is a common finding in chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) and (to a lesser extent) the other myeloproliferative disorders. Basophils in these conditions may have atypical morphological features, and an increasing basophil count is an indicator of disease progression/acceleration.
