Hi Jeey. Leukocytes are one of the components in the blood known as white blood cells that play a role in fighting germs in the body, whether viruses, bacteria, parasites. An increase in leukocyte levels indicates an ongoing infection. Consult your pediatrician regarding your child's condition for more information. This is due to the need for an examination based on clinical symptoms, physical examination and further analysis based on the results of the blood examination. The treatment itself is based on the possibility of infection found. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Regards, Dr Alyssa
