Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell that are part of the immune response. An increase in lymphocyte concentration is usually a sign of an infection (in some rare case, leukemias are found through an abnormally raised lymphocyte count in an otherwise normal person). A high lymphocyte count with a low neutrophil count might be caused by lymphoma. A low normal to low absolute lymphocyte concentration is associated with increased rates of infection after surgery or trauma. Normal counts may be anywhere from 16% to 50% As the previous poster mentioned, you should get the Dr to explain the significance in this patients particular case.
