62 Possible Causes for Left Shift of WBC, Leukopenia

  • Primary Myelofibrosis

    We found that fibrosis grade 2 and greater on a 0-3 scale was associated with clinical characteristics indicative of a more advanced disease, such as anemia, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia[] Compared with pre-PMF, overt PMF was enriched in patients with anemia, thrombocytopenia, leukopenia, higher blast count, symptoms, large splenomegaly, and unfavorable karyotype[] May be anaemia and leukopenia. Thrombocytosis is more common than thrombocytopenia.[]

  • Familial Myelofibrosis

    Blood counts generally reveal normocytic, normochromic anemia, leukopenia, and thrombocytopenia.[] Thus, patients suffering from myelofibrosis eventually develop anemia, leukopenia, and thrombocytopenia.[]

  • Chronic Neutrophilic Leukemia

Bone marrow biopsies showed fibrosis.[] Confusion, depression, autoimmunity, hyperlipidemia Psychiatric disease, cardiovascular disease Radioactive phosphorus ( 32 P) Radiopharmaceutical Anemia, thrombocytopenia, leukopenia[]

  • Acute Infectious Lymphocytosis

    50-70% bands -function: -WBC differential: function: immature neutrophils; may increase with bacterial infections causing a left shift -WBC: 0-4% lymphocytes -function: -[] C omplications of Leukopenia The most feared complication of leukopenia is suppression of the neutrophil cell line and subsequent neutropenia.[] Today, the term "shift to the left" means that the bands or stabs have increased, indicating an infection in progress.[]

  • Leukemoid Reaction

    This is known as a 'left shift'. A very high WBC count ( 50,000) with pronounced left shift that is not a leukemia is known as a "leukemoid reaction".[] Of interest, he never developed any significant leukopenia despite the myelosuppressive nature of docetaxel and gemcitabine combination.[] After paclitaxel injection, the WBC count increased to 70.37*109/L. Bone marrow aspirates and biopsy showed left-shift neutrophilia, which confirmed leukemoid reaction.[]

  • Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

    Peripheral blood examination showed leukocytosis with left shift. Bone marrow aspiration revealed myeloid hyperplasia with megakaryocytosis.[] Leukopenia is a shortage of normal white blood cells. This shortage increases the risk of infections.[] Leukopenia The shortage of normal white blood cells. This particular shortage can heighten the risk of infection.[]
