Where did all the white cells go?

Internal Medicine | 72 mins
We spend a lot of time focusing on red blood cells and anaemia… what about those white cells?
Increases and decreases in white blood cell lines can often be mild and non-specific in nature. What happens when we encounter more significant leucocytosis and leukopenia? When should we worry and how should be investigate these abnormalities?  What is a trapped neutrophil and who exactly is Chédiak-Higashi? How low is too low when it comes to neutrophils and do they all need antibiotics?!
