LPC can just be 1 stage (fan), when the stage is part of a turbofan engine the low pressure compressor is just called the fan. Generally there is just one compressor stage which acts on the flow of the bypass. Then depending on the size difference between the front and back of the HPC, which if it is too large the efficiency will decrease too much, there may be a booster section (if a two spool engine) which is attached to the low pressure spool (runs at the same rpm/powered by the LPT) which is within the primary section and could look like/be likened to LPC.
