  Basophil granulocyte - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Basophils are the least common of the granulocytes, representing about 1% of circulating leukocytes.
Like all circulating granulocytes, basophils can be recruited out of the blood into a tissue when needed.
Recent evidence suggests that basophils are an important source of the cytokine, interleukin-4, perhaps more important than T cells.

 Granulocyte - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Granulocytes are a category of white blood cells characterised by the presence of granules in their cytoplasm.
Their names are derived from their staining characteristics; for example, the most abundant granulocyte is the neutrophil granulocyte, which has neutrally-staining cytoplasmic granules.
A granuloma is a tumor containing granulocytes, and a "granulomatosis" is a necrotizing granuloma.

 Mast cell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Mast cells are very similar to basophil granulocytes (a class of white blood cells) in blood; The similarities between mast cells and basophils has led many to speculate that mast cells are basophils that have "homed in" on tissues.
Nevertheless, both mast cells and basophils are thought to originate from bone marrow precursors expressing the CD34 molecule.
The basophil leaves the bone marrow already mature while the mast cell circulates in an immature form, only maturing once in a tissue site.

Perhaps there should be a note that Neutrophil granulocyte sounds redundantly redundant to (at least some) ears, as there are no neutrophils that are not granulocytes.
As stated in my replies, the terms are used interchangably, but for reasons of completeness and correctness, neutrophil granulocyte is much to be preferable.
Indeed, Tristan reminds us, the "neutrophil" and "eosinophil" are basically just staining characteristics and could refer to other cells in the body (the mast cell is just as basophil as the basophil granulocyte).

Eosinophils are derived from hematopoietic stem cells that are committed initially to the myeloid and subsequently to the basophil-eosinophil granulocyte lineage.
Otherwise, a working diagnosis of idiopathic eosinophilia is made, and in the presence of both sustained eosinophilia (AEC ≥1500 cells/μL for at least 6 months) and target organ damage (eg, skin, heart, lung, nerve tissue), the process is subclassified as hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES).

If the diagnostic term in the pathology report is not in the list below, be sure to consult your ICD-O manual.

Within each category, the behavior of the leukemia is subdivided into acute, subacute, and aleukemia, chronic, and not otherwise specified.
