Excessive gas, diarrhea, nausea w/no vomiting, elevated white blood cell count, no fever, normal blood pressure, gas around gallbladder in X-ray = ??

Possible emergency.

Mild_elevation_of_blood_pressure
The elevated white count and gas around the gall bladder could be quite serious. I'm not sure where you got this info, especially about the gas. Get off the internet and get to your doctor ASAP.

What are common causes of a fever and high white blood cell count in a 2 year old child?

Many things

Baby
You are not providing adequate information with which to even make an intelligent guess. Bacterial infections are possible, but basically this child should be seen by a doctor and discuss the possibilities with the person seeing the baby.

Dr. Michael Engel answered:

What is low white blood cell count mean if high fever and sick?

Leukopenia may be...

Virus
counterintuitive, but it is seen frequently in the context of infection/inflammation. Usually we equate illness with a rise in WBC count because we mobilize our WBCs to fight off infections caused by multiple pathogens...viruses, bacteria, fungi for example. However, inflammatory cytokines can induce transient marrow suppression to cause leukopenia. Should resolve spontaneously. Get well soon.

10 mo Baby has white blood cell count 23,000.No ear infection or signs infection. What are the possibilities? (He is not immunized) high fever of 104

Sad situation

Otitis_media
An unimmunized kid with a 104 temperature may have something simple like a virus. S/he may also have a vaccine preventable illness like Hemophilus meningitis or blood poisoning.I would take the child to be evaluated and be sure to inform the doc of the lack of vaccines. They can proceed with a more thorough evaluation understanding the extra possibilities.

Dr. Michael Engel answered:

Can fever cause an increase in white blood cell count?

Yes, fever and WBC

Fever
elevation often go hand in hand in the context of infection and/or inflammation. Both are features of an "inhospitable environment" for the infecting agent. In that sense, fever is not all bad, it can just make you feel bad. Antipyretics like acetaminophen and ibuprofen can improve symptoms and help you ride out the problem, but if you are concerned about your status, get in touch with your Dr.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

What can cause a baby to have a fever and low white blood cell count?

Might be a virus

Baby
Low white blood cell counts can have different significance depending upon the particular situation. In a normal child with fever and low WBC it often suggests that this is due to viral infection, but there are other potential causes and the family doctor or pediatrician may want to follow this up with repeat testing, depending upon other findings.

2 month old got shots yesterday fever today white blood cell count 30 why??

Possible infection

Eosinophil
The elevated white blood cell count is unlikely to be caused by the vaccines. Most likely, she was about to get sick and the timing of the vaccines was coincidence. Vaccines CAN cause fever, but do not cause fever higher than 102 or so. If fever was higher and white cells are elevated, the baby probably has an infection of some sort.
