If this child is taking therapy for nephropathy, it may lower his neutrophil count.
Also, an elevated esinophil count may be seen with nephropathy.
I suggest you just follow up these values regularly.

This child is not receiving any therpy and his kidney function is monitored every 6 months

Then I would suggest a follow-up CBC after 1 week, provided there is no infection.
