WBC
Elevated: Infection, tissue necrosis, bone marrow malignancies, inflammation Decreased: infection, medications that suppress or weaken the immune system or bone marrow WBC
Elevated: Infection, tissue necrosis, bone marrow malignancies, inflammation Decreased: infection, medications that suppress or weaken the immune system or bone marrow

Increased (neutrophilia):
Bacterial infection, inflammatory conditions, tissue damage, malignancies of the bone marrow *Increased neutrophils in general: bacterial infection.
*Rise in bands in particular is highly suggestive of bacterial infection. Increased (neutrophilia):

Decreased (neutropenia):
Vital conditions, overwhelming infection that exhausts bone marrow, cancer drugs, antibiotics and psychotropic drugs, hereditary disorders *Newborns with sepsis are higher risk for developing neutropenia. Decreased (neutropenia):
