makingstrides  Macrophages secrete Il-1,6,8,12 and TNF - alpha. In this scenario, the patient is Il-12 receptor deficient. When macrophages engulf an object, it releases Il-12 to stimulate T-lymphocytes, that in return, release Ifn-gamma, which would convert the macrophage into an epithiliod histiocyte. +2
