• An abnormal elevation of white blood cells is referred to as a leukocytosis, and an abnormally low white blood cell count is referred to as leukopenia. (cme4life.com)
  • For example, an increased of white blood cells ( leukocytosis ), abnormally low levels of platelets (cells involved in blood clotting), and anemia may be evident in blood testing. (petmd.com)


  • Furthermore, in addition to presenting with isolated thrombocytosis, polycythemia vera can present with erythrocytosis alone, erythrocytosis and splenomegaly, erythrocytosis and leukocytosis or thrombocytosis, or all three together. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • An 86-year-old woman was seen at the hospital because of fatigue, night sweats, leukocytosis, and splenomegaly. (nejm.org)


  • For the purpose of this blog, let's dig into leukocytosis and its causes. (cme4life.com)

  • That number will really give us the first clue as to whether this leukocytosis is caused by an infection. (cme4life.com)
  • So, when we identify a leukocytosis patient with a suspected infection, we would note their absolute number of white blood cells - for an example, let's say it's 17,000. (cme4life.com)


  • The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between admission Hb levels, leukocytosis and clinical outcomes of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) treated with primary angioplasty. (go.jp)
  • Conclusion Higher mortality associated with higher Hb levels in STEMI patients treated with primary angioplasty is limited to patients with increased leukocytosis. (go.jp)


  • After dividing patients into high and low white blood cell (WBC) count groups, a U-shaped relationship of Hb levels and mortality was observed for patients with higher leukocytosis (1st and 5th vs mid quintiles respectively: HR =8.1, P=0.001 and HR =4.4, P=0.022), whereas in patients with lower WBC count higher mortality was related solely to the lowest Hb quintile (HR =6.9, P=0.010 vs mid quintile).
