CRP .1 mg/L. RA/anti-dsdna antibs/ANA all negative. Why might hematology report indicate "suggested reactive or inflammatory process"? Also noted subset of reactive lymphocytes, occasionally atypical.

See below

Virus
Reactive (atypical) lymphocytes are usually due to viral illness or stressor on the body. It could be due to a medicine reaction or autoimmune disorder as well. Your crp level of 0.1 is very low which is good. And your ra/anti ds dna are negative. So overall they didn't find anything abnormal and they called it possibly due to reactive process

What is the cause for high reactive lymphocytes?

Viral infection

Ebv
Viral infections like Epstein Barr (cause of mono), CMV and others are the usual causes of elevation of reactive lymphocytes. If these persist, it would be prudent to have a hematologist evaluate you.

If someone had lymphoma wouldn't their lymphocytes in CBC be abnormal or the T cells and B cells? Bc that's where the lymphoma originates isnt it?

Not always

Lymphoma
The complete blood count (CBC) can be normal in lymphoma. Lymphoma may or may not be detectable in peripheral blood. The cancer may be limited to the lymph nodes and bone marrow. In some lymphomas the lymphoma cells can be found in the peripheral blood (a so called leukemic phase).

We can't answer

Platelet
Especially with the abnormal morphology of the lymphocytes, you need to speak either with the treating physician -- primary care or consulting hematologist -- or with a physician you trust. No one here can tell you what this means though it is of course very concerning.
