When the white blood cells are counted they tend to be expressed as a percentage and this is given as a quantity per litre of blood. If the count of white blood cells is not at the correct number then there are various problems that could be causing this. The problem may be caused by neutrophil granulocytes, lymphocytes, monocytes, basophil granulocytes and also eosinophil granulocytes. Neutrophil granulocytes can be an indication of a bacterial infection and this can also include acute infections that are viral. These granulocytes are often expressed as a segmented appearance on the nucleus. The less mature neutrophils will not be quite as segmented. 
The count of white blood cells is sometimes referred to as a leukocyte count. This type of count is often requested by a physician as a count of the overall blood cells. The count of white blood cells takes into account the level of white blood cells that are in each litre of blood. The level of white blood cells is usually recorded as thousands per microlitre of blood or millions per litre of blood. 
The white blood cell count can be a sign of infection, allergy or inflammation. There are a number of conditions that are affected by the level of white blood cells that are in the blood. A cell count that is very high can be a sign of leukocytosis and a count that is low can be a sign of leuopenia. There are a number of different conditions that can cause the problem of leukocytosis and this includes bacterial infections, trauma, stress and also inflammation. The condition of leukopenia can be caused by radiation therapy, chemotherapy and also disorders of the immune system. 
In order to check the level of white cells in the blood, a blood sample will have to be taken and this is usually taken from the patient's arm. The normal level of white blood cells is between 4,300 and 10,800 per cubic millimetre of blood.
