Brief Answer: v Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic! In more than half of the cases with decreased white count, platelet count and other blood cells- there won't be any specific reason. However, a variety of causes such as hereditary, exposure to radiation, autoimmune disorders, pesticides, recreational drugs (ecstasy), other immunosuppressive drugs, viral infections like Epstein–Barr virus, viral hepatitis etc can cause this.
