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

What does it mean when the lymphocyte count is high? Is it good or bad? And why?

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. A high white count with a lotto neutrophils suggest bacterial infection whereas a white count with a lot of lymphocytes is more suggestive of ireland flexion. There is no value judgment per se whether it is good or bad. It is relative to the problem at hand. ...Read more

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
