Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

We do not interpret lab results for our readers as that needs to be done by the readers' own health care providers. The significance of this number depends on a person's whole health. Numbers less than 4,000 white blood cells per microliter of blood are considered low. Viruses can lower white blood counts, as can bacterial infections, cancer or auto-immune conditions. More testing may be needed. Please call for a consultation.
