High Lymphocytes Count

The normal white blood cell count of Lymphocytes for newborns is 5,800 cells/µL. Lymphocytes count increases during the first year to 7000 cells/µL then it starts decreasing to reach 2500 cells/µL in adults.   Since Lymphocytes count increases during the early childhood, Lymphocytosis detection varies by age. For children from birth to 3 years old […]

Monocyte count

Monocyte count represents the number of Monocytes in a microliter (cubic millimeter) of peripheral blood. The normal white blood cells count of the Monocyte is 1100 cells/µL in infants which decreases to half that count at the first year. In adults the normal count is 300 cells/µL. High Monocyte Count or Monocytosis is defined as […]

High Basophils count

High Basophils count is also known as Basophilia or Basophilic Leukocytosis. High Basophils count is defined as the Basophil count that is greater than 50 to 100 cells/µL of blood.  The case is detected when the Basophil count exceeds 2% of the differential white cells count. The normal white blood cell count is very low […]

High Eosinophils Count

Eosinophilia or Eosinophilic Leukocytosis is defined as an Eosinophil count that exceeds 500 cells/µL of blood. The Normal White Blood Cell count of the Eosinophil ranges between 25,80 cells/µL in infants to 200 cells/µL in adults. Beside the common causes of Leukocytosis, High Eosniophils count can occur as a result of  parasitic infection.It can also […]

Neutrophil Count

Neutrophil count is the count of neutrophil white blood cells in a microliter (cubic millimeter) sample of peripheral blood. Neutrophil makes up the highest count of normal white blood cell count, except at early childhood. Infants are born with the highest neutrophil count, normal Neutrophil count of newborns is 8870 cells/µL. Within the first 2 weeks […]

Causes of Leukocytosis

Luekocytosis literally means abnormal increase in the Leukocytes or the white blood cells. Luekocytosis can be affirmed by if the number of leukocytes that are circulating in the peripheral blood exceeds the Normal White Blood Cell Count of 10,000 white cells per microliter. As production and release of white blood cells is expected in cases […]
