You can't prevent lymphocytopenia that's caused by an inherited condition. However, you can take steps to control lymphocytopenia. Follow your treatment plan and take all medicines as your doctor advises.

Early diagnosis also can help control lymphocytopenia. In the United States, newborns are routinely screened for an immune condition that can lead to lymphocytopenia. This allows doctors to diagnose the disorder before serious problems develop.

You may be able to lower your risk for acquired conditions that cause lymphocytopenia. For more information about acquired causes of the disorder, go to "What Causes Lymphocytopenia?"
