Lichen planus and low white blood cell count

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi all, I have just had the results of some blood tests, liver, kidney, thyroid, B12 , folate and ferritn and a complete blood count. All were ok except they found slightly lowered white blood count in terms of lowered neutrophils. I have to have a retest in 4-6 weeks. Wondered if anybody has anything similar and if it resolved. I have both cutaneous and oral Lichen planus....

    HI Anne2427 I always have low white blood cell counts and have ever since diagnosed with autoimmune diseases, 20 years now. I have OLP and LP, Sjogrens and Raynaunds. Because there is a correlation between Sjogrens and Lymphoma and low white cell count I have to see an oncologist once a year to be evaluated. All clear for me as I just had my yearly eval and no signs of cancer but still low white count so idk! One of the many mysteries surrounding autoimmune diseases.

    Hi Anne,

    I had the same thing as well. It went as low as 1.0 and now back at 1.5 over a couple of years. What is your reading and did the doctors suggest anything for improving it? In my case they did not. Thanks.
