- Lymphocytes (white blood cells), an important part of the immune system responsible for fighting infections - their imbalance causes leukocytoses (increasing the number) and leukopenia (reduction). Most leukocyte disorders are the result of cancer or proliferative disorders or process (rapid increase in the number of circulating leukocytes in the blood, mainly occurs due to infection, although sometimes it could be because of bone marrow cancer). On differential blood count is influenced by various oncological pathologies:lymphoma (Hodgkin's lymphoma or Hodgkin's disease, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, Burkitt's lymphoma), leukemias (Leukemia) - acute and chronic, myeloma , Myelodysplastic syndromes.
- Platelets responsible for blood coagulation - thrombocytopenia, hereditary and acquired coagulopathies (hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, DIC et al.). Symptoms - increased bleeding tendency.
