In brief: Leukocytosis

A high white count (leukocytosis) can be caused by many different things, most commonly an infection.
Some people have high white cells due to a medication they are taking. Others are born with it. Others develop it because of dangerous conditions such as leukemia. Please consult with a hematologist to determine what form of leukocytosis you have.
