The protocols of the CD indicated an abnormal lymphocyte population with KWOC, VARIANT LYM, and FWBC flags.
As far as CD is concerned, there is a spurious extrapolation of the number of leukocytes in the WOC channel with a recorded high lymphocyte percentage of the CSF sample in most cases indicated by the alarms VARIANT LYM and KWOC. The CD performed this erroneous extrapolation of the leukocyte count when certain samples containing atypical lymphocytes were measured repeatedly.
