Hi.
What exactly was the complete blood count and differential count result?
A 35-40% lymphocyte count is still within normal range.
Lymphocytes respond to immune challenges.  If there is a viral infection, the lymphocyte count increases.  
There may not be much information that can be gathered from an xray of the spleen.  An ultrasound is preferable and will detect any splenic enlargement.  
Please do give updates.
Good luck.

you are correct it is an ultrasound i know it was high enough to throw up a red flag to her dr i took her in for routine blood work and she though further testing was needed she does not seem to be sick at all she has been diagnosed with pdsd and an eating disorder unspecified hope this helps i am not sure on the count i could be wrong on that but i am worried

Hi.
Did your daughter's doctor mention his considerations for the abnormality in her blood counts?
It would be best to wait for the ultrasound result.
For the meantime, you should try to relax and not to worry too much.
