Answer

In patients with secondary thrombocytosis (reactive thrombocytosis) for whom the causal comorbid condition has not been identified, maintain complete careful outpatient monitoring with physical examination and routine laboratory tests to exclude the development of an occult disorder (eg, malignancy).
