Hello neongirl,

Actually the combination of low Lymphocytes and high Neutophils is very typical. It is caused by Cortisone. As you know Lymphos and neutros are White blood cells (Leukocytes). Typically under Cortisone therapy the total leukocyte count remains WNL, but the neutrophils rise, and the lymphocytes decline.The CBC might show an increase in the number of red blood cells (RBC's). It might also show an increased WBC (white blood cell count), called leukocytosis. When these white blood cells are broken down (in the differential), there are usually more neutrophils (neutrophilia), less lymphocytes (lymphopenia), and less eosinophils (eosinopenia).

Good luck with your exam on Friday.

I just found my last results:

Ref.
Leukozyten 4.000-10.000/ µl 4.100/ µl
Lymphozyten 25-33 % 15 % *
Monozyten 3-7 % 3 %
Eosinphilie 1-3 % 1 %
Basophilie 0-1 % 0 %
Segment (neutrophile) 50-70% 77% *


I am on Azathioprine and Cortisone, My results have been like this for years.

Ciao,
Monique
