Sorry to know about her condition.

Well high lymphocyte count generally means infection usually viral or bacterial e.g tuberculous .

Other causes include autoimmune conditions, certain cancers, any causes of inflammation in the body.

So it basically has to be correlated with her complaints, symptoms and other findings on examination.

Hope it helps.

Please let ne know if you have any further queries.
