In severely deficient b2 expression (less than 1% of the normal amount of cell surface expression of the b2 integrin heterodimers) patients often die within the first year while moderately deficient b2 expression (5%-10% of the normal level) results in a milder form of disease.7 The cardinal features of classical form of disease includes delayed detachment of umbilical cord, non-purulent bacterial infections in the presence of marked granulocytosis and impaired wound healing.8 Both cases presented had these classical features.
According to Gjessing, the following biological abnormalities can be seen [9, 10]: (1) glucose abnormalities (excitement phase characterized by elevated fasting blood glucose and stuporous phase marked by elevated blood glucose in the glucose tolerance test) and (2) leukocytosis with neutrophil granulocytosis ("moderate" leukocytosis during the excited phase and "marked" leukocytosis during the stuporous phase).

It is known that tumor-induced granulocytosis can be explained by the production of granulocyte growth factors by tumor cells, while high body temperature is explained by the production of pyrogenic factors of malignant cells or macrophages in response to tumor necrosis.
The latter may manifest as granulocytosis, erythrocytosis, thrombocytosis, or a combination of these, depending on the disease subtype.
