Hello, I'm a 43 year ago led male that runs an intermediate low grade fever but my wbc is normal. What could cause this?
FEVER?: Need to know what your temp is. There is no such thing as "low-grade" fever. You either have a fever or you don't. The threshold is 100.4°F. Many potential causes of fever, though viral illnesses are still most common. If fever persists, even w/out other symptoms, you should see your doctor promptly. ...Read more

Mcv low rdw, tsat, lymph, platelets, high gran/wbc recurring fever and increased kappa lambda chains with normal ratio. Can this by due to malaria?
Increased kappa lambda chains:
Antibodies are produced by B lymphocytes, each expressing only one class of light chain. Once set, light chain class remains fixed for the life of the B lymphocyte. In a healthy individual, the total kappa to lambda ratio is roughly 3:1 in serum (measuring intact whole antibodies) or 1:1.5 if measuring free light chains, with a highly divergent ratio indicative of
The exact normal ratio of kappa ...Read more
4 yr old w/ 5 wks low grade temp (100.4) no other symptoms. 3 cbcs w/ flagged diff, yet overall norm wbc (~11, 000), rbc, hgb, etc. Neutro H (61%), Eos H (6%), Lymph L (28%), MCHC L (below 28%). Suggest fever cause? Doc says cbcs are normal; how so???
Numbers are just...: Lab results usually are numbers, and numbers are just numbers, with little meaning unless a doctor takes in the whole picture of what's going on with a patient. If a patient's blood cell count is mildly higher-or-lower than the reference range, the doctor may or may not consider the result abnormal, depending on the patient's previous results, symptoms, preliminary diagnosis, and medications. ...Read more

Can a flu shot lower WBCs? Had a CBC 2 days after flu shot. WBCs came back lower than normal (mine are already low).
It is possible.
Will strongly advise you to look into the reasons for low
WBCs- toxins, side effects of medications, etc.
Together with clearing the reasons for that I would advise you to take some herbs to strengthen your immune system and stimulate the bone marrow.

Child, 6, had well check and her CBC 3.5 WBC, other values normal, retest 6 wks. She had the flu (Jan) and had a low WBC. What can cause this? Worried.
Maybe normal: If your child is healthy, values may be normal. Viral illnesses can alter WBC for a few weeks but the bottom line is the health status of the child. However, If there are significant alterations of certain cell lines such a as red blood cells, platelets or significant drop in levels of certain white blood cell types, further evaluation may be needed. ...Read more

My husband has had a fever for five days, but his wbc is normal. What could be causing the fever?
I tested my semen there was noticeable presence of WBCs, during that time I was suffering from typhoid fever. Is it normal?
No: No. Typhoid fever should not manifest in your semen. By definition, you probably have subclinical prostatitis that you may want to address if you are concerned about infertility, even if you are asymptomatic. ("Prostatitis" won't "infect" your semen, but may contribute to less volume or other semen characteristic.) ...Read more

My son has had high grade fever since 2 days. His CBC shows Wbc at the low end @ 4.9 and high monocyte @11.5. What does this indicate?
High monocyte count: Hi, I am assuming your son has been seen and evaluated by his pediatrician? Did he/she order the bloodwork? Most likely, with limited information, a high monocyte count with fever can be due to a viral infection, which most likely is self limited. Normally, I would repeat the cbc when he is healthy again. Also, I recommend you call his pediatrician just to confirm that this is his opinion also ...Read more

Worry of misdignosed anal abscess. No fever. Normal wbc. 6 days of pain today is 7th. Pain randomly stopped. If it erupted will there always be leakag?
Probably wrong Dx: An abscess is a collection of pus in the tissues. They are normally exquisitely painful and remain so until they drain which means a lot of pus and blood. Can you feel anything there at all? You may instead be having something called proctalgia fugax which is sharp intermittent "random" pains in the rectal area. I would get a second opinion from a doctor what specializes in these diseases. ...Read more
With really high fever (103) went to hospital, they said all of my blood work was normal. How can I have a high fever with normal WBC?
Viral infection: WBC count is a very unreliable indicator of infection. A normal white count in no way rules out an infection. A very high percentage of febrile illnesses in young healthy people are due to viral infections. These run their course within 5-7 days. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen may be used to treat the fever. If you develop stiff neck, severe headache, uncontrollable vomiting, return to the ER. ...Read more
My 4 year old has pnemonia. At 104 fever for 7 days now. He has ESR of 48, a low WBC of 5.4, low neutrophil band of 4%. What does that indicate?
Pneumonia: As a pathologist who's devoted a lifetime to the lab, it's key to remember that the history and physical tell most of the story. I'd ignore esr's on folks already clearly sick. There is no really lower limit of normal for bands; if high they suggest serious bacterial infection. Wbc can go up, down, or stay the same in a community-acquired pneumonia. Shouldn't impact treatment decisions. ...Read more
My spine hurts to touch about 6" from my neck. I have daily fevers, low lymphocytes and WBC feels like someone is sitting on my head, crushing spine?
Need to be examined!:
Neck symptoms and low WBC may not be related. Often times patients test results return with mildly low WBC or lymphocytes. It depends on how much lower than normal they are. Mildly low counts can be "normal" for some patients.
If a patient has neck/spine pain and fever he or she needs to be examined by a physician. Don't try to self-diagnose these symptoms. See a primary care physician soon. ...Read more
