Eosinopenia is a form of agranulocytosis where the number of eosinophil granulocyte is lower than expected.

Leukocytosis with eosinopenia can be a predictor of bacterial infection.[1]

It can be induced by stress reactions, Cushing's syndrome, or the use of steroids.[2] Pathological causes include burns and acute infections.
