Question:

If a patient with a recent history of chemotherapy treatment for colon cancer presents to the ED status/post cardiac arrest and is found to have a white blood count of 25.0 (10^3/μL), what might be a potential active diagnosis for this multifactorial presentation.

Emily G.
Answer:

The white blood count would be expected to be on the lower end of normal range status/post chemotherapy treatment, therefore, we might assume the patient has some sort of infection, possible secondary to a bowel perforation due to the colon cancer.
