Low Monocyte Count

Low Monocyte count is also known as Monocytopenia and it refers to the abnormal decrease of Monocytes in the circulating blood. The normal white blood cell count of Monocytes ranges between 1100 cells/µL (5.8% of differential white blood cells count) in infants to300 cells/µL (4% of differential white blood cells count) in adults. In addition to […]

Low Lymphocytes Count

Low Lymphocytes Count is also known as Lymphopenia.  It occurs when the Lymphocyte count is less than 1,400 cells/µL in children and less than 1,000 cells/µL in adults.   The normal white blood cell count of Lymphocytes is 5,800 cells/µL in newborns and then it increases to reach 7000 cells/µL at the first year. The […]

Low Basophils Count

Low Basophils count is also known as Basopenia. It occurs when the Basophils count drops to lower than 20 cells/µL of human blood. The normal white blood cell count of the Basophil ranges between 100 cells/µL in infants to 40 cells/µL in adults. Since the counts are very low, differential white blood cell counting method […]

Low Eosinophils Count

Low Eosinophils Count is also known as Eosinopenia, it occurs when the Eosinophils count is less than 50 cells/µL of human blood. The normal white blood cell count of Eosinophils range between 450 cells/µL in infants to 200 cells/µL in adults. Low Eosinophils count may occur due to the same causes of Leukopenia such like […]

Leukopenia

Leukopenia means the “white reduction” and it is a term used to refer to the low white blood cells count. Since Neutrophils make up the highest count of White Blood Cells, a significant decrease in the normal Neutrophil count (Neutrophilia) would cause a decrease in the normal White Blood Cell Count. The first thoughts that […]

Neutropenia

Neutropenia is the decrease to the normal Neutrophil count. Neutropenia is defined as the Neutrophil count that less than 2,500 cells/µL. The normal white blood cell count for the Neutrophil is 8870 segmental (mature) cells/µL in newborns which drops down dramatically within 2 weeks to lower than 2600 cells/µL, then the normal Neutrophil count starts […]
