    45 year old female with a platelet count of 1,022 thou/cu mm. Platelets have been in the mid 700s for about 1.5 years and recently jumped. Several conventional tests, including chest/abdomen/pelvic CT have been done and all are WNL. JAK2 V617F mutation not detected. Waiting on CALR, MPL and BCR-ABL Assay to rule in/out Essential Thrombocythemia.

    What infections/inflammatory conditions can raise platelets and nothing else?
