1 doctor agrees

In brief: Possibly related

All depends on the type of liver disease your husband has ranging from acute to chronic, viral hepatitis or not.
If viral hepatitis, documented borderline increases seen. Absolute lymphocytosis greater tha 5 thousands per cmm is a cause of concern if these are assoc with hep C and cause intrahepatic lymphocytosis. Check with your GI doc what kind of liver dis and if there is liver lymphocytosis.
