I'm not sure: Leukocytosis means an elevated white blood cell count. This diagnosis can be made by looking at the results of a CBC (complete blood count), which is a lab test done on your blood. So a nurse can tell you that you have leukocytosis just by looking at this result. Reasons for leukocytosis include infection, inflammation, and stress! i hope this helps.
