To clarify the possible role of persistent thrombocytosis after splenectomy being a predisposing factor causing development of thromboembolism, blood coagulation profiles and platelet functions were studied in 34 cases being 1-18 years post-splenectomy from non-malignant diseases. Persistent thrombocytosis was observed in 16 with significant negative correlation between hemoglobin level and platelet count indicated the role of anemia on persistent post-splenectomy thrombocytosis.
