Abstract:


Finding of spurious thrombocytopenia is a common occurrence in clinical practice whereas pseudothrombocytosis is very uncommon event. Despite several technical advancements in automated haematology analysers, a careful peripheral smear examination remains standard examination in cases of discrepancy of platelet counts. We are presenting a case of beta thalassaemia intermedia who had pseudothrombocytosis, which was falsely labelled as myeloproliferative neoplasm before the patient visited our haematology clinic.
