Anemia characterized by appearance of immature myeloid and nucleated erythrocytes in the peripheral blood, resulting from infiltration of the bone marrow by foreign or abnormal tissue.
A reduction in the number of circulating ERYTHROCYTES or in the quantity of HEMOGLOBIN.
A form of anemia in which the bone marrow fails to produce adequate numbers of peripheral blood elements.
A condition of inadequate circulating red blood cells (ANEMIA) or insufficient HEMOGLOBIN due to premature destruction of red blood cells (ERYTHROCYTES).
Congenital disorder affecting all bone marrow elements, resulting in ANEMIA; LEUKOPENIA; and THROMBOPENIA, and associated with cardiac, renal, and limb malformations as well as dermal pigmentary changes. Spontaneous CHROMOSOME BREAKAGE is a feature of this disease along with predisposition to LEUKEMIA. There are at least 7 complementation groups in Fanconi anemia: FANCA, FANCB, FANCC, FANCD1, FANCD2, FANCE, FANCF, FANCG, and FANCL. (from Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/dispomim.cgi?id=227650, August 20, 2004)
Acquired hemolytic anemia due to the presence of AUTOANTIBODIES which agglutinate or lyse the patient's own RED BLOOD CELLS.
Anemia characterized by a decrease in the ratio of the weight of hemoglobin to the volume of the erythrocyte, i.e., the mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration is less than normal. The individual cells contain less hemoglobin than they could have under optimal conditions. Hypochromic anemia may be caused by iron deficiency from a low iron intake, diminished iron absorption, or excessive iron loss. It can also be caused by infections or other diseases, therapeutic drugs, lead poisoning, and other conditions. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Miale, Laboratory Medicine: Hematology, 6th ed, p393)
Conditions which cause proliferation of hemopoietically active tissue or of tissue which has embryonic hemopoietic potential. They all involve dysregulation of multipotent MYELOID PROGENITOR CELLS, most often caused by a mutation in the JAK2 PROTEIN TYROSINE KINASE.
A de novo myeloproliferation arising from an abnormal stem cell. It is characterized by the replacement of bone marrow by fibrous tissue, a process that is mediated by CYTOKINES arising from the abnormal clone.
The formation and development of blood cells outside the BONE MARROW, as in the SPLEEN; LIVER; or LYMPH NODES.
Works containing information articles on subjects in every field of knowledge, usually arranged in alphabetical order, or a similar work limited to a special field or subject. (From The ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science, 1983)
The soft tissue filling the cavities of bones. Bone marrow exists in two types, yellow and red. Yellow marrow is found in the large cavities of large bones and consists mostly of fat cells and a few primitive blood cells. Red marrow is a hematopoietic tissue and is the site of production of erythrocytes and granular leukocytes. Bone marrow is made up of a framework of connective tissue containing branching fibers with the frame being filled with marrow cells.
A myeloproliferative disorder of unknown etiology, characterized by abnormal proliferation of all hematopoietic bone marrow elements and an absolute increase in red cell mass and total blood volume, associated frequently with splenomegaly, leukocytosis, and thrombocythemia. Hematopoiesis is also reactive in extramedullary sites (liver and spleen). In time myelofibrosis occurs.
Acute and chronic conditions characterized by external mechanical compression of the SPINAL CORD due to extramedullary neoplasm; EPIDURAL ABSCESS; SPINAL FRACTURES; bony deformities of the vertebral bodies; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations vary with the anatomic site of the lesion and may include localized pain, weakness, sensory loss, incontinence, and impotence.
The first seven VERTEBRAE of the SPINAL COLUMN, which correspond to the VERTEBRAE of the NECK.
Lists of words, usually in alphabetical order, giving information about form, pronunciation, etymology, grammar, and meaning.
Anemia characterized by larger than normal erythrocytes, increased mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and increased mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH).
A disorder characterized by the presence of ANEMIA, abnormally large red blood cells (megalocytes or macrocytes), and MEGALOBLASTS.
A megaloblastic anemia occurring in children but more commonly in later life, characterized by histamine-fast achlorhydria, in which the laboratory and clinical manifestations are based on malabsorption of vitamin B 12 due to a failure of the gastric mucosa to secrete adequate and potent intrinsic factor. (Dorland, 27th ed)
An increase in circulating RETICULOCYTES, which is among the simplest and most reliable signs of accelerated ERYTHROCYTE production. Reticulocytosis occurs during active BLOOD regeneration (stimulation of red bone marrow) and in certain types of ANEMIA, particularly CONGENITAL HEMOLYTIC ANEMIA.
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of FOLIC ACID in the diet. Many plant and animal tissues contain folic acid, abundant in green leafy vegetables, yeast, liver, and mushrooms but destroyed by long-term cooking. Alcohol interferes with its intermediate metabolism and absorption. Folic acid deficiency may develop in long-term anticonvulsant therapy or with use of oral contraceptives. This deficiency causes anemia, macrocytic anemia, and megaloblastic anemia. It is indistinguishable from vitamin B 12 deficiency in peripheral blood and bone marrow findings, but the neurologic lesions seen in B 12 deficiency do not occur. (Merck Manual, 16th ed)
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN B 12 in the diet, characterized by megaloblastic anemia. Since vitamin B 12 is not present in plants, humans have obtained their supply from animal products, from multivitamin supplements in the form of pills, and as additives to food preparations. A wide variety of neuropsychiatric abnormalities is also seen in vitamin B 12 deficiency and appears to be due to an undefined defect involving myelin synthesis. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p848)
ERYTHROCYTE size and HEMOGLOBIN content or concentration, usually derived from ERYTHROCYTE COUNT; BLOOD hemoglobin concentration; and HEMATOCRIT. The indices include the mean corpuscular volume (MCV), the mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), and the mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC).
Volume of circulating ERYTHROCYTES . It is usually measured by RADIOISOTOPE DILUTION TECHNIQUE.

A form of interactive entertainment in which the player controls electronically generated images that appear on a video display screen. This includes video games played in the home on special machines or home computers, and those played in arcades.
Forward displacement of a superior vertebral body over the vertebral body below.
Theoretical construct used in applied mathematics to analyze certain situations in which there is an interplay between parties that may have similar, opposed, or mixed interests. In a typical game, decision-making "players," who each have their own goals, try to gain advantage over the other parties by anticipating each other's decisions; the game is finally resolved as a consequence of the players' decisions.
A subspecialty of internal medicine concerned with morphology, physiology, and pathology of the blood and blood-forming tissues.
The production of red blood cells (ERYTHROCYTES). In humans, erythrocytes are produced by the YOLK SAC in the first trimester; by the liver in the second trimester; by the BONE MARROW in the third trimester and after birth. In normal individuals, the erythrocyte count in the peripheral blood remains relatively constant implying a balance between the rate of erythrocyte production and rate of destruction.
The preparation of platelet concentrates with the return of red cells and platelet-poor plasma to the donor.
The transfer of blood platelets from a donor to a recipient or reinfusion to the donor.
Increased numbers of platelets in the peripheral blood. (Dorland, 27th ed)

High number of circulating CD34+ cells in patients with myelophthisis. (1/10)

Six patients with bone marrow micrometastases from solid cancers presented with increased numbers of circulating CD34+ cells; the CD34+ cell counts were very high in some cases. By contrast, no patient with metastatic cancer without bone marrow involvement showed raised numbers of circulating hemopoietic progenitors.  (+info)

Premature labor and leukoerythroblastosis in a newborn with parvovirus B19 infection. (2/10)

Leukoerythroblastosis is a rarely observed disease characterized by the presence of leukocytosis, erythroid and myeloid blast cells in peripheral blood. To our knowledge, it had not been diagnosed in a premature newborn before the case we report have.A female baby weighing 1164 grams, who was born prematurely at the 29th week of gestation by Cesarean section was referred to our newborn intensive care unit due to prematurity and respiratory distress with no prenatal pathological findings. Physical examination revealed tachypnea and hepatosplenomegaly. Routine laboratory measurements showed significant leukocytosis (85,000/mm3) and anemia (Hb: 9.6 g/dL and Hct: 27.6%). The platelet count was normal. The peripheral blood smear suggested leukoerythroblastosis with the presence of nucleated erythrocytes, monocytosis, and 4% blasts. Bone marrow cytogenetic examination was normal. Parvovirus B19 Ig G and M serology were detected to be positive. The etiological factors observed in leukoerythroblastosis occurring during neonatal and early childhood period are congenital-postnatal viral infections, juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia and osteopetrosis. To our knowledge, no case of leukoerythroblastosis in such an early phase has been reported in the in literature. As a result, premature delivery and leukoerythroblastosis were thought to have developed secondary to intrauterine parvovirus B19 infection. Leukoerythroblastosis is a rarely observed disease characterized by the presence of leukocytosis, erythroid and myeloid blast cells in peripheral blood. It is reported that it can be observed following hematologic malignancies especially juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia, acute infections, hemolytic anemia, osteopetrosis, myelofibrosis, neuroblastoma and taking certain medicines. To our knowledge, it has not been diagnosed in a premature newborn before. Here we the case of a newborn who was referred to our intensive care unit due to being born prematurely at the 29th week of gestation and diagnosed with leukoerythroblastosis.  (+info)

Lenalidomide therapy in myelofibrosis with myeloid metaplasia. (3/10)

We present results of 2 similarly designed but separate phase 2 studies involving single-agent lenalidomide (CC-5013, Revlimid) in a total of 68 patients with symptomatic myelofibrosis with myeloid metaplasia (MMM). Protocol treatment consisted of oral lenalidomide at 10 mg/d (5 mg/d if baseline platelet count < 100 x 10(9)/L) for 3 to 4 months with a plan to continue treatment for either 3 or 24 additional months, in case of response. Overall response rates were 22% for anemia, 33% for splenomegaly, and 50% for thrombocytopenia. Response in anemia was deemed impressive in 8 patients whose hemoglobin level normalized from a baseline of either transfusion dependency or hemoglobin level lower than 100 g/L. Additional treatment effects in these patients included resolution of leukoerythroblastosis (4 patients), a decrease in medullary fibrosis and angiogenesis (2 patients), and del(5)(q13q33) cytogenetic remission accompanied by a reduction in JAK2(V617F) mutation burden (1 patient). Grade 3 or 4 adverse events included neutropenia (31%) and thrombocytopenia (19%). We conclude that lenalidomide engenders an intriguing treatment activity in a subset of patients with MMM that includes an unprecedented effect on peripheral blood and bone marrow abnormalities.  (+info)

Effects of weiganli on the hemopoietic function of the myelosuppressed anemic mice. (4/10)

OBJECTIVE: To study the effect of weiganli ([Chinese characters: see text]) on bone marrow hemopoiesis. METHODS: The effects of weiganli on the peripheral blood picture and the number of bone marrow nucleated cells (BMCs) were observed in myelosuppressed anemic model mice, and the effects of weiganli on the growth of colony forming unit-granulocyte macrophage (CFU-GM), colony forming unit-erythroid (CFU-E), burst forming unit-erythroid (BFU-E), colony forming unit-megkaryocyte (CFU-Meg) were investigated by in vitro cell culture technique. The hemopoietic stem cells (HSCs, c-kit+) in bone marrow were double stained with fluorescent antibody PE-C-Kit and FITC-CD45, and the HSCs (c-kit+) were counted by flow cytometer with CD45/SSC (side scatter) gating. RESULTS: Peripheral blood cell counts and the number of BMCs were significantly improved after weiganli administration; and bone marrow hemopoietic stem/progenitor cells were significantly increased. CONCLUSION: Weiganli can effectively promote the recovery of hemopoietic function in the myelosuppressed anemic mice.  (+info)

Normoblasts in peripheral blood of Nigerians: their clinical significance. (7/10)

The clinical conditions associated with peripheral blood nucleated red blood cells (NRBC) in Nigerians were investigated prospectively to define them and establish their mortality. Of the 4,565 differential counts carried out within ten months, NRBC were detected in 120 cases (2.6 percent). Of these, severe nutritional anemia was seen in 64.4 percent, sickle cell anemia in 23.8 percent, neonatal status in 7.6 percent; and malignant diseases in 4.2 percent. Leukoerythroblastosis occurred in 11 percent. The overall mortality was 4.2 percent, and among those with congestive cardiac failure, there was no fatality. These results show that malignancy is not a major cause of normoblasts in peripheral blood in this environment and that the prognosis is not as poor as has been reported in some North American and European literature.  (+info)

Myelophthisic anemia (or myelophthisis) is a severe type of anemia found in some people with diseases that affect the bone marrow. Myelophthisis refers to the displacement of hemopoietic bone-marrow tissue either by fibrosis, tumors or granulomas. The word comes from the roots myelo-, which refers to bone marrow, and phthysis, shrinkage or atrophy. Myelophthisis can occur in the setting of chronic myeloproliferative disease (e.g. myelofibrosis), leukemia, lymphoma, and metastatic carcinoma or myeloma. It is common in people who have chronic idiopathic myelofibrosis. It has been linked to small-cell lung cancer, breast cancer or prostate cancer that metastasizes to the bone marrow. Historically, the most common cause of displacement of healthy bone marrow was tuberculosis.[citation needed] Currently, the most common cause is displacement of bone marrow by metastatic cancer (extramedullary hematopoiesis tends to be modest). Other causes include myeloproliferative disorders (especially late-stage ...
Like all acute leukemias the clinical consequences of ALL are largely the result of bone marrow infiltration, potentially leading to bone pain as well as a myelophthisic anemia with consequent pancytopenia. Infiltration of the spleen, liver, and lymph nodes can result in splenomegaly, hepatomegaly, and painless lymphadenopathy. In a minority of cases, seeding of the CNS can result in neurological impairments ...
The presentation of most acute leukemias is similar and is due to marrow and solid lymphoid organ infiltration as discussed above. Marrow infiltration often results in a myelophthisic anemia and thus pancytopenia, with attendant symptomology. In some cases, marrow infiltration can be so severe that patients experience bone pain. Additionally, generalized painless lymphadenopathy as well as hepatomegaly or splenomegaly can be presenting symptoms. In a minority of cases seeding of the CNS can yield neurological impairments as well as symptomology associated with increased intracranial pressure ...
Global Myelofibrosis Market: Overview Myelofibrosis is an uncommon type of bone marrow cancer and is related to a group of blood cancers known as myeloproliferative neoplasms. A simple blood test along with bone marrow biopsy can diagnose myelofibrosis. Myelofibrosis is also known as chronic myelosclerosis, agnogenic myeloid metaplasia, aleukemic megakaryocytic myelosis, idiopathic myelofibrosis, and leukoerythroblastosis.…
Trilinear hematopoiesis (TH) can occur in thyroidal aspirations by one of three mechanisms: as mass-forming extramedullary hematopoiesis (EMH), as marrow elements within thyroidal metaplastic bone or as marrow elements in aspirated ossified neck cartilage. Extramedullary hematopoiesis is a dynamic process of blood cell development occurring outside the confines of the medullary cavity of bone often in the settings of hypoxia, inflammation and bone marrow failure. Several case reports exist of EMH in various organs mimicking a mass and being discovered on fine needle aspiration. Although liver, spleen and lymph nodes are the most common sites, thyroid EMH can also occur. In a 2008 review, Westhoff et al. found that EMH of the thyroid most often occurs in older patients and is most likely secondary to a myelophthisic disease, such as myelofibrosis or metastatic bone marrow disease. Some reported cases of EMH in the thyroid have been attributable only to chronic anemia and still other cases have ...
To investigate the protective effects of squid ink in chemotherapy, BALB/c mice were used as animal models of injuries induced by cyclophosphamine, a well known chemotherapeutic drug. The mice were randomly divided into five groups with the same number of males and females in each group. At the end of the experiment, animals were sacrificed to investigate organ indexes and antioxidant ability of the spleen, peripheral blood profile and quantities of bone marrow nucleated cells. Results showed that the hemopoietic function of mice was injured by cyclophosphamine, as indicated by decreases of contents of erythrocytes, leukocytes, hemoglobin and bone marrow nucleated cells (P0.05), as well as modification of organ indexes (P

Forget about cholesterol full stop. C-reactive proteins (2 versions exist as blood tests for) are inflammatory markers. Better find out reasons for sub clinical inflammations and deal with them.
