Usually this indicates an active infection. The numbers stated won't tell where the infection is--only that it may be present. Usually we look at what type of neutrophils are elevated and can tell if the infection is brand new or has been present a little while. Depending on the presence of symptoms, we will often prescribe an antibiotic for active infections.

What does it mean if your white blood cells and neutrophils are high?

If your white blood cell count is high, this shows an infection, usually bacterial. If your neutrophil count is also high, this shows an acute infection, whereas if your macrophage count were to be high, this would show a chronic infection. An acute infection or inflammation means that it has had a duration of usually less than 2 weeks. A chronic infection lasts longer than 2 weeks. The difference is that the neutrophils are the first responders to inflammation and infection, then come the macrophages. The neutrophils have a shorter lifespan and the macrophages can live for a long time fighting infection. This is how you get the higher count of neutrophils with an acute infection, and the higher macrophages with chronic infection.

What does neutrophils count 84 mean?

84 is on the high side....most relative % range is 60-80%. Just may mean that you have a bacterial infection. Neutrophils are the White Blood Cells that are responsible for phagocytosis (eating bacteria). This value is not that important without your total white blood cell count. If it's 5-10K, you're in the normal range.
