Due to thrombocytosis (457-593 x 109/L), bone marrow aspiration was performed, which revealed hyperplasia of mature megakaryocytes and JAK2 V617F mutation.
12] Platelet large cell ratio (P-LCR) is significantly decreased in thrombocytosis and increased in thrombocytopenia; P-LCR inversely related to platelet count and directly related to PDW and MPV.

Taking in consideration that the emergence of thrombocytosis in inflammation, including JIA, is primarily the consequence of IL-1, tumor necrosis factor alpha and IL-6, [44,45] while IL-17A stimulates the production and displays the synergetic effects with these cytokines, [39] the correlation of IL-17A levels and thrombocyte count could be expected, although it has not been proved in our study.

Blood cell count was within normal values, which is in accordance with cutaneous mastocytosis; in systemic mastocytosis, blood cell counts may reveal anemia, thrombocytopenia, thrombocytosis, leukocytosis, and eosinophilia.
Test characteristics, including sensitivity, specificity, and concordance rate with the reference method of the evaluated automated counts at the thrombocytopenia and thrombocytosis thresholds, were also analyzed.
Though their function is important, too many of these platelets can lead to a condition known as thrombocytosis.
