Lymphocytosis is an increase in the number of lymphocytes in the blood. Lymphocytosis conventionally refers to a lymphocyte count greater than 4000 per microliter, however the number may be higher in infants and children. It is common in acute viral infections, including glandular fever, but it may also be seen with intracellular bacterial infections, such as in tuberculosis. The malignant blood disease chronic lymphocytic leukaemia can cause a massive lymphocytosis, as can other leukaemias. Lymphocytosis, preceded by leukopenia, is also seen in the Icteric Phase of a viral hepatitis infection.

Lymphocytosis is an abnormal increase in the number of lymphocytes —; a type of white blood cell — in your blood.
Lymphocytosis isn't a disease but a sign of an underlying problem.
Lymphocytosis typically causes no symptoms and is often discovered incidentally when a blood test is done for some other reason.

In terms of cell dynamics, lymphocytosis is the consequence of a homeostatic deregulation provoked by an imbalance in the rates of proliferation and/or death.
Another contribution of this report is the demonstration that transient lymphocytosis arising just prior to seroconversion is at least partially due to an increase in B cell proliferation (Figure 6).
With the aim to correlate lymphocytosis with a defined B cell sub-population, we have demonstrated that two surface molecules, CD5 and CD11b, whose expression has been previously associated with late stages of BLV infection [13-15,23,24] are also important markers at the seroconversion period.
