Study group discussion: Shift to left

Would someone tell me what exactly is 'shift to left' in WBCs?

The production of immature cells... And release of them in circulation.

If you draw the stages of white blood cells from left to right, becoming more mature.. Shift to left would mean immature WBC's have been released into circulation.

Woah. Didn't know it.

Oh, thanks! Had this query since second year! :D

In which conditions do we get a left shift?

Infection, inflammation, leukemia.

Which leukemia? Acute or chronic? Myeloid or lymphoid?

I think it's fair to say it occurs in all leukemias.. I couldn't find a reliable resource online on the same.
