      Neutrophilia

Neutrophilia (too many bacteria-fighting white blood cells) is usually due to an infection or inflammation but may result from not having a spleen or from having a myeloproliferative disorder.

Neutrophils are the primary white blood cells that respond to a bacterial infection, so the most common cause of marked neutrophilia is a bacterial infection.

        More information about neutrophilia...

Neutrophils are also increased in any acute inflammation, so will be raised after a heart attack or other infarct.

A neutrophilia might also be the result of a malignancy. Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML or chronic myeloid leukemia) is a disease where the blood cells proliferate out of control. These cells may be neutrophils. Neutrophilia can also be caused by appendicitis.
