Hi,

Thanks for the query.

I assume you meant TLC (Total leucocyte count).

High total leucocyte count is associated with infections in which case, he needs to be evaluated for source of infection and treated with effective antibiotics.

I can be able to answer your query better if you can let me know how high his TLC is and what are his clinical symptoms now.

Awaiting your reply; and if my assumption is wrong, please correct me.

Regards
