Default Budding cells in the esophagus!

A 34 year old man complaining painful swallowing, esophageal endoscopic biopsy shows budding cells. Which of the following would most likely to predispose this patient to hematogenous dissemination of this infection?

1. Low T-lymphocyte count
2. Low neutrophil count
3. Hypogammaglobulinemia
4. Complement deficiency

Neutrophils play a key role in the prevention of fungal growth and the invasion of tissues. Defects in neutrophil number and function have been consistently implicated in the pathogenesis of disseminated candidiasis
