Depending on the laboratories, the upper limit for thrombocytes count varies between 350,000 to 450,000/microL (350 to 450 x 109 /L). Thrombocytosis refers to the condition where the thrombocyte count is above this upper limit.

Without awareness of the cause(s) (i.e. knowing which tests she has undergone and the ...
