What diseases cause low MPV?
Conditions that may be associated with a low MPV and variable platelet counts include:
- Bone marrow failure.
- Splenomegaly (enlargement of the spleen), which often causes platelets to be trapped in the spleen.
- Medications that suppress platelet formation, such as chemotherapy.
- Iron deficiency anemia.

What is a concerning MPV level?
A healthy platelet count is between 150,000 to 450,000 platelets per microliter of blood. If your platelet count is within that range, that may show that you have an average amount of platelets. However, if it falls under 150,000 or above 450,000, that could suggest that you have a health problem.
Can a viral infection cause high neutrophils?
This is the most common cause of a high neutrophil count. Most bacterial infections cause a high neutrophil count but not all of them do. Viral infections don’t generally cause neutrophilia but they may in the early stage of infection. Some fungal and parasitic infections can cause neutrophilia as well.
Why would neutrophils be high and lymphocytes be low?
The elevation can be caused by many different conditions and may be an indicator of a severe infection, an inflammatory disorder, or cancer. High levels of neutrophils may indicate a severe infection or stress on the body. Low levels of lymphocytes may also reflect severe stress and the release of stress hormones.
Can Rheumatoid arthritis cause low platelets?
Immune thrombocytopenia. Autoimmune diseases, such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, cause this type. The body’s immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys platelets. If the exact cause of this condition isn’t known, it’s called idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. This type more often affects children.

What causes high monocytes and low lymphocytes?
High absolute count of neutrophil, monocyte and platelet, and low absolute count of lymphocyte were associated with poor prognosis of gastric cancer. However, only lymphocyte and monocyte count were independent prognostic predictors. Combination of lymphocyte and monocyte count could further increase the predictive value for gastric cancer.
