Neutrophils usually remove agents that initiate an acute inflammatory response by phagocytosis and digestion. If an agent is indigestible it provokes a vicious cycle of acute inflammatory responses that can cause local tissue damage. The body deals with these reactions by forming granulomas. Macrophages and lymphocytes are the principle cells involved in granulomatous inflammation.
