37.7% Neutrophils and 47.3% Lymphocytes with ANC
Neutrophil Absolute = 1.48 K/cu mm. All other values for CBC in the normal range. Cause for concern?
No: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, while your cell counts are slightly out of kilter, it is not a reason to be concerned about. If you do not have any symptoms, watchful waiting is appropriate. ...Read more

What diagnosis for fever for 17 day without any symptoms.CRP -ve, ESR 22&56 .WBCs 3500, neutrophl 1000, lymphocytosis.LDH 468 no thrombocytopenia?
Mono?: Obviously, you are in a workup by someone. Keep going. Mononucleosis has some of these characteristics, though "no symptoms" would be improbable given the blood results. The old addage: "common diseases occur commonly, rare diseases occur rarely" advocates that mono might be a good bet. But, that's only a statistical perspective. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What causes low lymphocytes and MCV , high neutrophile percentage fluctuating low platelet count for one year ? No bacteria or viral infection detect.
White blood cells: are comprised mostly of neutrophils and lymphocytes. If the number of lymphocytes are low then percentage of neutrophils will naturally be high, even though there numbers are normal. Viral infections (HIV and others) are a common cause of low lymphocyte counts. From a practical standpoint, it may not be necessary to test for the other types of infection if the counts are not dangerously low. ...Read more
Few months ago CBC with low rbc, wbc, hemoglobin, hematocrit, platelets. Since then CBC normal, but some low platelets. Often feel achy, could be hiv?
HIV does not Hide: If you are worried about an HIV infection then you go get an HIV test. HIV is diagnosable by testing from seven days after exposure onwards with the correct tests. It does not hide and we no longer need to worry about ambiguous symptoms. If your HIV tests are negative then I do not understand the concern. There is nothing in a CBC test that would represent an early HIV infection. ...Read more
High monocyte %, manual count in toddler. All other results on CBC normal, mono CT 16. Cause for concern?
Not necessarily: The monocytes are often up some in a variety of viral illnesses but less commonly than the lymphocytes. Infectious mononucleosis does occur in a muted ( less intense) form in toddlers & the usual mono blood test can be negative until months after the illness has passed. If the kid is cruising around enjoying life i would ignore the test & get back to living. ...Read more
