The investigations are interpreted in the context of;

1) Symptoms

2) Signs

3) Physical exam findings.

4) Other investigations.

Since your rest of all counts are normal. This absolute lymphocyte count is clinically not significant and does not point to anything serious or significant.

You are very welcome.

This is a very mild rise and would be ignored by the clinician.

Wish you a very happy, prosperous, healthy and safe new year 2017.
