Hello doctor,

I got a blood test done this week. The investigations are as follows: Red cell distribution width is 11.4 %, platelets count is 130 thou/UI, mean platelet volume is 13.3 fL. Morphology remarks: Gaint platelets are seen, and small clumps of platelets are seen.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Let me tell you that there are abnormalities like high MPV (mean platelet volume) and the presence of giant platelets. This type of picture occurs when there is platelet destruction. So, the bone marrow is stimulated more and hence a lot of premature platelets get released from the megakaryocyte.
  • The causes include blood infections like dengue, malaria, and septicemia. Other causes are certain drugs, ITP (idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura), Bernard-Soulier syndrome, and alcohol consumption.
  • A clinical correlation is a must before we can arrive at a final diagnosis. You can attach all the reports done and mention other specific symptoms, like bleeding, if present.
  • Consult a physician or a hematologist for further examination.

Take care. Hope your concern solved.
