Although thrombotic occlusion of small vessels in thrombocytosis is allegedly well recognized, it has been reported only rarely. We treated 4 patients with primary thrombocytosis in whom ischemic toe lesions with normal peripheral pulses were the presenting and only symptoms. The symptoms preceded diagnosis by 5 years, 3 years, 1 year, and 1 month respectively. Treatment of the hematologic disorder resulted in disappearance of the toe lesions, Thrombocytosis should be routinely searched for in patients with ischemic toes and normal peripheral pulses.

Acute mesenteric ischemia is most commonly secondary to embolism followed by arterial thrombosis, nonocclusive ischemia, and less commonly venous thrombosis. Chronic mesenteric ischemia is almost always caused by...
