i rec'd blood test results from my daughter's 1 year check up and she had a high lymphocyte count (76%). On the printout it said normal range was btwn 20-70 however everything I have read on line shows a normal percentage is 20-40%. There was no explanation from my doctor about this high count and I am still waiting for a call back. Her WBC is normal (10.9k/ul) but her platelet count is high (only slightly 419k/ul and normal is listed as 140-400). I just don't know what to think about the high lymphocyte count. Since there was no explanation I was left to do my own research and it all leads me in the direction of leukemia. Any help/advice would be appreciated.
My sons bloodwork also confused me. His lymphs is 53. The range on the paper said 20-55. on line it said for child 55-70. I don't understand why a hospital can't print out the range for a child so we as parents know what it all means. I have been going through alot wit his doctor. Keep on them. Keep calling untl you get an answer.The 76% still goes over what the paper said.Where did you read 20-40%.My son has swollen lymph node in his neck and is having biopsy done this friday. What was your childs sedrate level?I don't know if I am helping or rambling, sorry. The main thing is to keep on the doctors so you feel better. Good luck. Lisa
The range of 20-40% is for adults. Sometimes a high lymph count may be consecuence of an infection such as rubella or chickenpox, but it can also may be indicative of a more serious problem, you may discuss with your doctor in more detail.
