Good evening, I am concerned because I just have my blood count back and my hematologyst told me my lymphocytic count is low, what does that mean?

Many causes: There are many causes of lymphocytopenia (low lymphocyte count). Your hamatologist should talk to you about further testing depending on how low the count is and if it has always been present (inherited diseases) or is it a new finding. Talk to your doctor.

In lymphocyte phenotyping of periferial blood, what is the normal percentage for Kappa and Lambda light chains?

In lymphocyte phenotyping of periferial blood, what is the normal percentage for Kappa and Lambda light chains?

0.26-1.65 K/L ratio: Free light chains will normally be present in the blood at low levels, with a kappa/lambda ratio of about 0.26 to 1.65. Increased kappa free light chains and a higher kappa/lambda ratio may mean a plasma cell disorder producing excess monoclonal kappa chains. Increased lambda free light chains and a lower kappa/lambda ratio may mean a plasma cell disorder producing excess monoclonal lambda chains. ...Read more

Recently I have gone through complete blood test. And lymphocytes count is 46%. Is it sign of having any disease.

(2100 of 3500 cells are lymphocytes) so you have a slight lymphocytosis in setting of leukopenia. It could be viral or just a normal variant. Get another CBC checked in 3-4 months. Thanks. ...Read more
