Myelemia: Or myelocytosis is a descriptive term for the increased number of myelocytes described and is not a medical condition per se. further work up will be needed in order to determine the condition conducive to above changes. A hematologist will likely be needed for follow up and in order to elucidate the actual cause for described changes.
