Hi, having most all of the immune cell counts being high like that is rare. I suppose it would be classified as "panleukocytosis", but that's just a name saying that all the white cells (immune cells) are high.
What could cause that? I don't know, except for some strange infection condition, or else maybe some problem with the spleen (which would normally remove the white cells that are part their prime).
But I've never heard of any blood cancer that could cause all those cell counts to be high.
