High Lymphocytes

My nephew (Age 6 Yr 1 Month) had a blood test report …… where we see that in “Differential Leucocyte Count" segment the “Lymphocytes” is High (46%). In "Reference" segment we found that normal Lymphocytes level is 20% to 40%. Please tell me is there any cause of danger?? From this, is there any chance of "Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia"?
In the Report : Total Leucocyte Count is 9200/cu mm.   and    Neutrophils is 44%.
There are no viral fever or bacteria infection.

Hi, I'm a pediatrician.  Lab values are often standardized for adults, leading to falsely abnormal" findings.  Children have significantly higher lymphocyte counts than adults naturally.  At age 6, that value is only slightly higher than the normal range for his age, if at all.  It most likely indicates a recent viral infection (which results in the production of more lymphocytes).  

Wish I had seen this at the time.
