Thank you for posting your query.
High WBC count
, in association with fever
, could be suggestive of an underlying bacterial infection. The risk is high in you, as you are on immunosuppressive drugs for treating lupus
(such as I urban, azathioprine
When WBC count is more then 11000, with fever, we need to find out the underlying cause of infection, and treat with appropriate antibiotics.
I hope it helps.
