We describe post-splenectomy lymphocytosis (PSL) in 23 patients, a majority (20/23) of whom have undergone splenectomy as a staging procedure for Hodgkin's disease. The absolute lymphocyte count ranged from 4.0 to 8.7 x 10(9)/l. The lymphocytosis was noted 4-242 (median 70) months after splenectomy and persisted almost unchanged in most patients on prolonged follow up (median 50 months). Immunophenotyping of the lymphocytes revealed no monoclonal B cell population.
