Core Tip Lymphocyte count reflects immune function and inflammatory state of body with infectious disease. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 spreads and invades through respiratory mucosa, triggers a series of immune responses and induces cytokine storm in vivo, resulting in changes in immune components such as lymphocytes. Previous studies have shown that the decrease in lymphocyte count can be used as an indicator of severity for both severe acute respiratory syndrome and Middle East respiratory syndrome, both of which are coronavirus infections. Therefore, this paper systematically reviews and meta-analysis the literature evaluating the diagnostic and prognostic utility of the lymphocyte count in patients with viral pneumonia by coronavirus infections.
