Thrombocytosis - Thrombocythemia and Thrombocytosis

The condition sometimes is called primary or essential thrombocythemia.

What causes the bone marrow to make too many platelets often isn't known.

In addition to the bone marrow making too many platelets, the platelets also are abnormal in primary thrombocythemia.

Thrombocythemia and Thrombocytosis

Thrombocytosis often has no signs or symptoms.

This is due to the presence of structures resembling platelets in the blood such as needle-like cryoglobulin crystals, cytoplasmic fragments of circulating leukemic cells, bacteria, and red blood cell microvesicles.
