Many things.: A low lymphocyte count can be associated with various causes. It can be congenital, as part of immune deficiency. It can be related to viral illness and other infections. It can be due to treatment with Prednisone and other immunosuppressive medications. It can be part of an autoimmune condition. But most common is transient due to simple viral infection.
