Reactive thrombocytosis
Thrombocytosis (or thrombocythemia) is the presence of high platelet counts in the blood, and can be either primary (also termed essential and caused by a myeloproliferative disease) or reactive (also termed secondary). Although often symptomless (particularly when it is a secondary reaction), it can predispose to thrombosis in some patients.
In a healthy individual, a normal platelet count ranges from 150,000 and 450,000 per mm³ (or microlitre) (150–450 x 109/L). These limits, however, are determined by the 2.5th lower and upper percentile, and a deviation does not necessary imply any form of disease. Nevertheless, counts over 750,000 (and especially over a million) are considered serious enough to warrant investigation and intervention.

Overview Thrombocytosis is a medical term used to describe a high number of circulating platelets in the blood. Platelets (also called thrombocytes) are small fragments of cells which, following blood vessel injury stick to the damaged vessel wall and to each other forming a major component of the blood clot.
