Question
Reportability--Heme & Lymphoid Neoplasms: Is essential thrombocytopenia reportable? See Discussion.

Discussion
Many times essential thrombocytopenia has been coded based on blood counts. Sometimes the discharge summary states thrombocytosis (NOS), and the case is coded to essential thrombocytopenia. Are these cases reportable?

Answer
For cases diagnosed 2010 and forward, access the Hematopoietic Database at http://seer.cancer.gov/seertools/hemelymph.

The following are not alternative names for any reportable disease process:

  • Essential thrombocytopenia
  • Reactive thrombocytosis
  • Thrombocythemia
  • Thrombocytopenia
  • Thrombocytosis
The diagnosis of essential thrombocythemia is based on blood counts, but is usually a diagnosis made by excluding other myelodysplastic disorders. The following are reportable disease processes:

  • Essential thrombocythemia (9962/3)
  • Essential thrombocytosis (9962/3)
  • Refractory thrombocytopenia (9992/3)
