Hello,
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

Increase in Lymphocytes is explained by the respiratory infection, which you had two weeks ago. Lymphos are raised in a chronic infection which may linger on for some time. Since the differential leukocyte count (DLC) is a percentage value, so neutrophils decrease corresponding to the increase in lymphocytes. Your this count is not clinically significant if your total leukocyte count (TLC) is normal, no other investigations show abnormality and you do not have any significant symptoms.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
