I recently had a cbc drawn because of a petechia like rash, sore throat and low grade fever.

The result was
wbc 9.7
platelets 240,000
and rbc and hct all within nromal limits...

Should I be concerned with the wbc a little elevated???

You wbc is well within normal range. I just came back with a wbc of 11.1, and my doctor said it was probably just an infection. Normal is 4.8 - 10.8
