What does a small increase in plasmocytes (0.07 - reference value <0.01 10E9/l) and a very high positive ANA (homogeneous pattern >1:640) tell?

In brief: Nothing alone

This is not a "very high ANA" and many healthy people have titers this high.
Counting plasmacytes is an unusual lab test and standards aren't well-understood. If you have clinical features suggestive of lupus, autoimmune hepatitis or one of the other illnesses in which there's usually ANA, this helps establish the diagnosis. Otherwise, keep living a healthy lifestyle & don't trouble yourself.
