Introduction: Leukocytosis is a condition marked by abnormal increase in leukocyte count due to an inflammatory response as a defense against most of the infections, or bone tumors; including leukemia. The aim of this study is to analyze the effect of blood transfusion in leukocytosis patients with favism as compared to patients treated with antibiotics or combination of both. Methods: A total of 97 patients with favism who were referred to the University hospital in 2016-2017 were studied. Key findings: These patients experienced acute hemolysis following beans meal. These patients were either treated with blood transfusion, antibiotics or combination of both. Conclusions: This study shows that blood transfusion is an effective therapeutic option for the treatment of leukocytosis. Antibiotics are not deemed necessary for the treatment and blood transfusion alone, can decrease leukocytes to the normal level
