Monocytes Absolute High?


Monocytes are a type of white blood cell. When evaluating cells, counts can be taken where the total of one cell type is calculated as a ratio of the total number of white blood cells. This is called a relative count. An absolute count, would be counting only the total number of monocytes as a stand alone figure. A high absolute monocyte count probably means that infection is occurring. A risk is that over time these cells can be depleted.
