cd4%
Oct 25, 2005

with a total wbc count of 5200 and a lymphocyte percentage of 40% what can I expect my cd4 count to be around??

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

If 40% of 5200 WBCs are lypmphocytes, you have about 2100 lymphocytes. If one assumes (very crudely) that you're CD4% is 50% (which is approximately "normal"), then your estimated CD4 cell count is about 1050.

Given the assumption about the CD4%, this can be taken as an upper estimate of the absoulte CD4 count. BY
