Low lymphocytes: Higher lymphocytes are usually associated with viral infections. However this is not a given. One should never decide just from a lymphocyte or a leucocyte count whether it is a viral or bacterial. History, health of other members of the family or friends, a thorough examination by a doctor. total leucocyte counts, CRP ESR and other tests all aid in making a differentiation.
