low neutrophils high lymphocytes

My 17 month old son just had 2nd blood test come back with low neutrophils and high lymphocytes. The doctor said something about neutropenia? Should i be worried or is this just sign of a virus?

a high lymphocyte count indicates a viral infection, the decreased neutrophils affect the body's ability to fight off the infection.. if your son is suffering from a viral infection, it should be treated.. and the wbc's will be normal again..

Thank you, we are going to a hematologist next week to do further testing. He has neutropenia? Continuing to pray for a virus!
