Is low neutrophils and high lymphocytes signs of lukemia? - Online Doctor Chats
how can i help you?
This is regarding my son's CBP Report
He is 2 yrs 1 months old
and weighs very less at only 10.7 kg
He didn't gain much in last 2 months, and also we generally keep a track of his Haemoglobin, so did a CBP
Now here is the result
please go ahead
Haemoglobin - 12.8
PCV - 35.3 vol% (Ref: 4.1 ~ 5.5)
MCV: 75.9 fl (76-95)
MCH: 27.5 pg/cells (25-33)
MCHC: 36.6 g/dl (31-37)
platelet count: 2.84 l/mm3 (1.5-4.5)
Neutrophils: 50% (54-62) *** [Out of Range]
Lymphocytes: 45% (25-33) *** [Out of Range]
Monocytes: 3 (3-7)
Now I am worried with the low Neutrophils & High Lymphocytes
I read some place that this may be the sign of leukomia, is that correct?
No, that is not correct when the total count is well within normal limits
Also, when his last CBP was done in Jul, 2013, these were normal (62 & 33 for N&L )
and the neutrophils and lymphocyte percentages are not very much out of range
Also, the WBC was 12500in Jul which came down now
moreover, these changes are quite common even in mild infections
ok, so he has mild infection
12500 for a 2 year old would be normal
it was 12.5, now its 8.9K
WBC counts are fine
he does not has cold, we did the CBP just yesterday
don't worry about it
any medication we should follow for the infection?
It need not be cold, it can be any mild infection, without any symptoms
You don't need to do anything right now
so, it would get normal automatically?
I would not consider this report as abnormal
is there any need to do a followup CBP again after some time?
You don't need to keep repeating the test without reason
is there anything else I can help you with?
Not sure how to enhance his weight
Underweight is a different issue
CBC does not tell much about weight gain issues
You should deworm him every six months
and feed him nutritious foods
Any medicine for that?
means for deworm
Yes, the medicine is Albendazole
but, you will need a prescription for that
thanks a lot
you are welcome
