What does it mean when your cfs results say 264 rbc, 1 leukocyte, 72 lymphocytes, 18 neutrophils, and 10 histiocytes. Number of cells counted 100?
Traumatic Tap: VS subarachnoid hemorrhage A little blood may have gotten into the fluid on the way in or out if I'm understanding the numbers you have posted.

Probably not: But depends on the actual neutrophil count. So multiply the percentage of neutrophils x the total wbc. Example: WBC 5.0 (5000) and neutrophils are 80%, then the goal neutrophil count is 4000. Now unless your neutrophils are less than 800 or you have recurrent infections, I do not get overly concerned. Approximately 6% of the population has a low white count. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Not necessary: Not necessary, leukocytosis is common and could occur in the setting of infection. WBC of 17.8 with elevated neutrophils (ANC of 16.3) could be seen in bladder infections, pneumonia, viral infections, etc. It would be helpful to provide us with your Hemoglobin and Hematocrit levels to see if you are anemic, also what is your platelet levels as these numbers could help us a lot in the diagnosis. ...Read more
