Answer

No distinguishing features of secondary thrombocytosis (reactive thrombocytosis) are found on physical examination. Physical findings reflect the underlying condition. In patients who have postsplenectomy thrombocytosis, evidence of a previous splenectomy should be eapparent on physical examination. [10]
