The clinical test for lymphocytes acquired from a patient's urine is called a urine lymphocyte count. This test is used to detect the presence of lymphocytes in the urine, which can indicate an infection or inflammation in the urinary tract.

To obtain a urine lymphocyte count, a sample of urine is collected from the patient and sent to a laboratory for analysis. The sample is then centrifuged to separate the cells from the urine. The cells are then stained and examined under a microscope to count the number of lymphocytes present. The results of the test are then reported as a percentage of lymphocytes in the urine sample.
