Lymphocytes Count High
My 3 yr old has a very high neutrophil count, very low lymphocyte count, high sed rate, low hematocrit. What could be going on with him. Repeat labs?
Infection: The shift to neutrophils and away from lymphocytes occurs during the early stages of fighting an infection or fighting a bacterial infection. The sed rate is a nonspecific marker, that could be up w/infection, or lots of other things. The low hct doesn't fit well, unless just barely out of normal. In any case, at 3 yrs old, needs close exam by pediatrics. ...Read more
Lots of B cells: A lymphocyte enumeration is a count of the lymphocytes in your blood. Lymphocytes primarily include t-cells, b-cells, and nk-cells. B-cells are identified by cd19, a marker on their surface. Have the doctor who ordered the test help you interpret the result. The number of b-cells (how how the cd19 count is), your age, blood vs bone marrow, and your symptoms help him/her interpret the results. ...Read more
Viral: Usually if we do a blood count for a person with an infection would look at the total white count as well as the differential.

It still could be ap: It still could be appendicitis but the lymphocytes suggest maybe a viral infection. There is a well validated score system called the alvarado score which predicts the chance that your symptoms are from appendicitis. See my website for more at www.Appendicitis.Pro. See "do I have appendicitis? You should definitely see a doctor today. Discuss getting a ctscan with her. ...Read more
I have had a slightly high lymphocyte count for years, but dr has only just noticed. Is there any chance it could just be normal for me or bad news?
It's just you: Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside on either side. If you're older and actually seem sick and the absolute count's more than say 8000, a pathologist might check you out for preleukemia, though it's not really treatable. I'll bet it's nothing. ...Read more
Unclear: Lymphocyte "count" usually refers to blood. In tissues lymphocytes can be benign and due to inflammation or autoimmune disease, but can also be malignant (not as common, especially in someone so young). A pathologist should be working on this for you to determine the meaning of the finding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
