My lab results show lymphs 48 (high). What does it mean?

Do you have the total white count and the percentage for each type of white cell?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes, monocytes 4 %, Eos 1, Neutrophils47 % and lymphs and the Kab writes High

What is the total white blood count, which is normally around 5 - 10,000?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

It just says>

Neutrophilis *( Absolute ) 2.8 x 10E3^uL

Lympha ( Absolute) 2.8 x 10 E3 uL

Monocytes (Absolute) 0,2 X 10 E3 uL

Eos 0.1 X 10 E3 uL

Basos O

Its a CBC with differential Platelet

Platelets 269 X 10E3 uL

Thank you for the additional information.

When performing a complete blood count (CBC), the result will typically include the total white count and a differential, which is the percentage of each type of white cell. By multiplying the total white count by the percentage of each type of white cell, the absolute number of each type of white cell is determined. When the white count is on the low side, the percentages can be somewhat abnormal, even though the absolute counts will be normal. Your total white count would be 5.8 for a 48% lymphocyte percentage to yield an absolute count of 2.8. An absolute lymphocyte count of 2.8 is within the normal range. The normal range varies somewhat between labs, but is generally 1.0 - 3.5. If the absolute lymphocyte count is normal, the fact that the percentage is slightly elevated is not a concern.

The most common cause of an elevated absolute lymphocyte count, called lymphocytosis, is a viral infection, and many different viral infections can do this. There also are a few bacterial or parasitic infections that can cause an elevated lymphocyte count, such as pertussis or toxoplasmosis. Lymphocytosis can also be seen with certain blood disorders, such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and usually causes very high elevations of the lymphocyte count.
