Hi ,Thanks for writing in.
High lymphocyte count is not usually related to vitiligo .
You need to get other causes of high lymphocyte count ruled out.
Some bacterial and viral infection can cause high lymphocyte count.
You need to get ESR and PCR for Tuberculosis tested.
Vitiligo as such does not lead to high lymphocyte count.
Hope this helps.
