A 69-year-old man came at our observation for thrombocytosis. Peripheral blood counts showed: PLT, 805x109/L; hemoglobin 14.4 g/dl; WBC, 7x109/L (with 58% neutrophils, 27% lymphocytes, 12% monocytes, 2% eosinophils, and 1% basophils). Bone marrow examination at trephine biopsy showed a hypercellular marrow with an obvious megakaryocytopoiesis increase (Figure 1). Some of the megakaryocytes were small, with a reduced ploidy. The karyotype, assessed as previously described [8,9] showed an isolated inv(2)(p13;q14). The patient did not record any previous thrombosis or hemorrhage. Clinically, the disease remained stable, the PLT count being 750 x109/L, at the time of writing after 6 years of hydroxyurea treatment, at the daily dosage of 1000 mg p.o. No thrombotic or hemorrhagic event was reported during the follow-up.
