A repeat CBC showed improvement, with a moderate leukocytosis

Laboratory findings showed leukocytosis
during the first postoperative day (WBCs 14,180/[micro]L) with WBCs up to 18,000/[micro]L during the second postoperative day; furthermore, there was an increase in CRP values.

Upon investigation patient had anaemia (Hb-5.8), leukocytosis

Another possible cause of CK elevation, which is neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS), was eliminated since the patient had no other symptoms such as fever or leukocytosis
. Besides, he was well oriented and his mental status was normal.
