Needs detail history n examination findings . Do crp blood c/s urine r/e n c/s widal test . Low hb is probably due to iron deficiency anemia since mcv mch r low and rdw is raised . High tlc n thrombocytosis would love to r/o kawasaki disease . Such high counts definately in favour of bacterial sepsis admit the patient n start broad spectrum iv antibiotics . Adjust according to reports .

Check for kawasaki symptoms n signs as i cn see thrombocytosis here as well along with leucocytosis..please give detailed history so that we can localise the infection.. Another thing u should consider doing once child well is do complete work up peripheral smear , serum ferritin and hb electrophoresis as hb and pcv are very low to rule out hemolytic anemias like thalassemia . good luck!

Incomplete Kawasaki and UTI are important consideration Thrombocytosis could be secondary to IDA.

Leucocytosis looks bacterial infection.
