Is It Normal ???
Aug 25, 2001

Dear Doctor,

I was wondering if it were normal or even possible to have normal wbc of 9.5 and lymphocytes of 32.5, but have low CD4 count? I live in a place where CD4 counts are not available, is there a way to estimate CD4 count based on other test ??

Please help, really need it

Response from Dr. Feinberg

There is no way to estimate the proportion of lymphocytes that are CD4+. One would imagine that with a normal total white blood cell count and a normal total lymphocyte count that having abnormally low CD4 cells is highly unlikely.

KS on the butt?
