Because this type of information is not tracked and because some people with essential thrombocythemia do not present with symptoms and are therefore not diagnosed, it is unknown the age of the oldest person with essential thrombocythemia. Essential thrombocythemia usually affects people in middle age. It can also be seen in younger patients, especially females under age 40.
