Exact leucocyte count you should mention. Diagnosis of leukemia is based on peripheral blood picture , no of blast cells, blast cells in bone marrow then immunohistochemistry. you should consult with your doctor regarding these issues if grossly abnormal peripheral blood count is seen then consult with hematologist. take care of your child.
