Hello!

The WBC of 22,000 is very concerning ...

He should be undergoing evaluation at the hospital is WBC is that high ...

Do you know if he has high neutrophils ( that would be more consistent with a bacterial infection )

This could be such as appendicitis or pneumonia as possible causes

He should be at hospital undergoing evaluation for such a high WBC though ....yes many causes would be in need of IV antibiotics ...

He should have physical exam ...based on exam may need added tests >>> depending on direction of his symptoms and clinical picture and exam he may warrant such tests as chest xray / abdominal CT / blood smear ....

When did he first get sick ?

How much fever has he had?

Is he home now? At ER ? Other ??

Health Professional: Anthony Bray, MD, Doctor replied 2 years ago

If abdominal pain and vomiting and rising fever then an intra-abdominal infection could be a concern ....

If rapid pulse / rapid breathing / cough then pneumonia could be a possible concern ...

The bot***** *****ne is that the WBC is very serious and he should be at hospital now being checked further with that high if WBC .....

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback Thank you and Best Regards!

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
