PURPOSE: Reactive thrombocytosis is occasionally seen in hospitalized patients. The rise is often gradual, usually beginning several days after the period of maximal stress. Although usually benign and self-limited, some cases have been associated with increased mortality especially in patients with cardiovascular risk factors due to the increased platelet aggregation. Reactive thrombocytosis has been reported to occur as a response to a variety of conditions such as major trauma, surgery, neoplasms and inflammation. Studies have not clearly elucidated the types of patients at risk, the stressors that are more likely to lead to reactive thrombocytosis as well as the temporal relationship between the stressor and the thrombocytosis. The aim of our study was to explore these relationships.
