White blood cell disorders are a set of conditions that occur when the body has an abnormal white blood cell count. White blood cells are an important part of the immune system. A low white blood cell count, also called leukopenia, can decrease the body’s ability to fight off infection, while a high white blood cell count, or leukocytosis, can be an indicator of an infection, an autoimmune response such as rheumatoid arthritis, or of cancer.
