Hi there. A decreased percentage of white cells like neutrophils could have been due to widespread bacterial infection which may have improved as the infection cleared. The various abnormal white cells that is possible include toxic granulations in severe infection,dohle bodies in acute or systemic infections, auer bodies in leukemias, bands , hypersegmentation in B12 and folate deficiency etc. so depending on the clinical condition, you see various abnormalities in white cells andneed a clinical correlation. You may get a fresh count and smear after your daughter is free of the infection. Take care.
