More info needed: A splenic infarct, by itself, shouldn't have all those affects. If your spleen is hyperactive you can have low counts, and if it is big and making extra cells (ie: extracellular hematopoesis) which is found in certain hematologic conditions, you may have elevated cells. What is reaon for splenic infarct?
