Hi,
Thanks for asking.
Based on your query, my opinion is as follows.
1. Difficult to imagine a platelet count of 10000 since 10 years.
2. Mabthera is commonly used in lymphocytic leukemia treatment and I believe due to suppression of leukemic cells, platelet count has improved to 15000.
3. Bone marrow biopsy is necessary along with hemogram for further opinion. Further clarifications along with clinical history and investigation necessary.
Hope it helps.
Any further queries, happy to help again.
