Bone Marrow Examination: Removal of bone marrow and evaluation of its histologic picture.Pancytopenia: Deficiency of all three cell elements of the blood, erythrocytes, leukocytes and platelets.Bone Marrow: 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.Red-Cell Aplasia, Pure: Suppression of erythropoiesis with little or no abnormality of leukocyte or platelet production.Lymphohistiocytosis, Hemophagocytic: A group of related disorders characterized by LYMPHOCYTOSIS; HISTIOCYTOSIS; and hemophagocytosis.

The principle cellular component of bone is comprised of OSTEOBLASTS; OSTEOCYTES; and OSTEOCLASTS, while FIBRILLAR COLLAGENS and hydroxyapatite crystals form the BONE MATRIX.Bone Remodeling: The continuous turnover of BONE MATRIX and mineral that involves first an increase in BONE RESORPTION (osteoclastic activity) and later, reactive BONE FORMATION (osteoblastic activity). The process of bone remodeling takes place in the adult skeleton at discrete foci. The process ensures the mechanical integrity of the skeleton throughout life and plays an important role in calcium HOMEOSTASIS. An imbalance in the regulation of bone remodeling's two contrasting events, bone resorption and bone formation, results in many of the metabolic bone diseases, such as OSTEOPOROSIS.Bone Marrow DiseasesSheltered Workshops: Protective places of employment for disabled persons which provide training and employment on a temporary or permanent basis.Hypercalcemia: Abnormally high level of calcium in the blood.Hematopoietic Stem Cells: Progenitor cells from which all blood cells derive.Tunisia: A country in northern Africa between ALGERIA and LIBYA.

Prognostic significance of bone marrow biopsy in essential thrombocythemia. (1/338)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The diagnostic and prognostic value of bone marrow biopsy (BMB) has been widely investigated in patients with chronic myeloproliferative disorders (CMPD). The present study is based on a review of the results of routine BMBs taken from 93 essential thrombocythemia (ET) patients at the time of diagnosis. DESIGN AND METHODS: The common BMB histologic parameters and clinico-hematologic variables were considered for diagnostic and prognostic purposes. Clinico-pathologic correlations were looked for univariately. Moreover, the diagnostic significance of the histologic findings was tested by means of cluster analysis. Overall survival and event-free survival were considered as prognostic endpoints. RESULTS: There were no correlations between the clinic and pathologic findings, and none of the histologic and clinical parameters was predictive of survival or the occurrence of major clinical events. Cluster analysis of the BMB findings revealed two distinct morphologic patterns: one was clearly myeloproliferative; the other had somewhat dysplastic features. The event-free and overall survival rates in the latter group were significantly worse (p = 0.0377 and p = 0.0162 respectively), with major ischemic events accounting for most of the difference in event-free survival. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: These results have no clearcut counterpart in the literature, but we feel that dysplastic BMB findings could be included in the definition of ET prognostic scores in order to allow therapeutic strategies to be adapted to the level of risk.  (+info)

Plasmablastic morphology is an independent predictor of poor survival after autologous stem-cell transplantation for multiple myeloma. (2/338)

PURPOSE: To study the prognostic value of plasmablastic morphology after autologous stem-cell transplantation for relapsed or primary refractory myeloma. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Seventy-five patients were studied. Investigators blinded to the clinical details of the individual cases reviewed bone marrow aspirate slides to determine plasmablastic classification. Plasmablasts were defined using strict, well-described criteria. Plasmablastic morphology was considered to be present (plasmablastic myeloma) when 2% or more plasmablasts were present in the plasma-cell population. RESULTS: Patients underwent transplantation 5 to 88 months (median, 20 months) after the initial diagnosis of myeloma. Twenty-eight percent of patients had plasmablostic morphology. A significantly greater proportion of patients with plasmablastic morphology had abnormal cytogenetics compared with those with nonplasmablastic classification (73% v 31%, respectively; P = .003). The overall survival rate measured from the time of transplantation was significantly worse in patients with plasmablastic morphology compared with those without (median survival time, 5 months v 24 months, respectively; P < .001). Progression-free survival time was shortened also, with a median time of 4 months compared with 12 months, respectively (P < .001). In the multivariate analysis, plasmablastic classification was the most powerful prognostic factor after transplantation for both overall (P = .001) and progression-free survival rates (P < .001). We also identified three risk groups based on plasmablastic morphology: plasma-cell labeling index, lactate dehydrogenase, and cytogenetics. The median overall survival time was 38 months when none of these factors was abnormal, 17 months with one abnormal factor, and 8 months with two or more abnormal factors (P < .001). CONCLUSION: Plasmablastic morphology is a powerful independent predictor of poor survival rate after autologous stem-cell transplantation for relapsed or primary refractory myeloma.  (+info)

Long-term toxicity of modified recombinant human tumor necrosis factor in Macaca mulatta. (3/338)

AIM: To study the long-term toxicity of modified recombinant human tumor necrosis factor (rhTNF-NC) in Macaca mulatta compared with recombinant human tumor necrosis factor (rhTNF). METHODS: rhTNF-NC 93, 9.3 GU/m2, and rhTNF 62 GU/m2 were injected i.v. daily to 16 Macaca mulatta for 1 month and 10 d, respectively. Hematologic, chemical, urinalysis values, ECG, specific antibody, bone marrow, and pathologic profile of organs were measured. RESULTS: No more adverse effects of rhTNF-NC were found in spite of anorexia in 4 monkeys and palpebral edema in 2 monkeys of 93 GU/m2 group. Besides, in rhTNF group, the injury of liver and kidneys, the decrease of erythron, the phlebitis, and thrombosis at injection site occurred. Both drugs caused the production of specific antibody. CONCLUSION: No serious adverse effects of rhTNF-NC were found in Macaca mulatta. The toxicity of rhTNF-NC was much lower than that of rhTNF.  (+info)

Focal lymphoid aggregates (nodules) in bone marrow biopsies: differentiation between benign hyperplasia and malignant lymphoma--a practical guideline. (4/338)

AIMS: To provide practical guidelines for the differentiation between benign and malignant focal lymphoid aggregates (lymphoid nodules) in routinely referred bone marrow trephine biopsies, using a synoptic approach including clinical data and histological workup. METHODS: For easy identification of very small lymphoid infiltrates the chloroacetate esterase stain was applied as a screening procedure. This allowed the identification of 491 formalin fixed, paraffin wax embedded specimens with one or more lymphoid nodules. Examination of lymphoid infiltrates included such variables as histotopography, demarcation, cytology, reticulin fibres, and immunohistochemistry with a set of monoclonal antibodies (CD20, CD45R, CD45R0, CD3, CD43). Evaluation of clinical and morphological data was carried out independently. In case of malignant lymphomas, a correlation with corresponding lymph node findings was made. RESULTS: 352 patients had benign focal lymphoid aggregates usually associated with systemic autoimmune diseases, chronic myeloproliferative disorders, toxic myelopathy, and viral infections. Discrete nodular infiltrates of (small cell) malignant lymphomas (n = 93) simulating benign hyperplasia were found in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, germinal centre cell lymphomas (CB-CC), and lymphoplasmacytic/cytoid lymphomas (LPI). In addition to immunoreactivity, certain histological variables proved distinctive. These were: (1) histotopography, that is, localisation of the lymphoid aggregates within the bone marrow space; (2) relation to the surrounding tissue: margination or interstitial spillage of lymphoid cells; and (3) increase in reticulin fibres. CONCLUSIONS: A combined diagnostic procedure identifying several distinctive features, in particular histotopography and immunohistochemistry, provides a most promising way of discriminating reactive from neoplastic lymphoid nodules in the bone marrow.  (+info)

Dibromomannitol in the treatment of chronic granulocytic leukemia: a prospective randomized comparison with busulfan. (5/338)

Dibromomannitol (DBM) is a new agent for the treatment of chronic granulocytic leukemia. A propsective evaluation of the drug was undertaken in a randomized comparison with busulfan. Forty previously untreated, Philadelphia chromosome-positive cases were treated, with 20 patients in each treatment group. The protocol provided for continuous maintenance therapy after remission induction, with a crossover to the opposite drug in patients who became refractory to the primary agent but are without evidence of blastic tranformation. There were 14 remissions in the DBM group and 15 in those treated with busulfan. The rate of decrease of the elevated leukocyte count was more rapid with DBM, but prolonged disease control off treatment occurred in only three of 14 cases as opposed to nine of fifteen busulfan-treated patients who required a median delay of 12 mo before maintenance could be initiated. Hypoplasia occurred in one DBM patient and two busulfan cases. Following recovery, crossover to the opposite drug in two cases again resulted in hypopllasia. Increased skin pigmentation, amenorrhea, pulmonary fibrosis, and cytologic dysplasia, commonly associated with busulfan adminstration, were also noted with DBM. The median duration of disease control with busulfan was 34 mo and 26 mo with DBM. There was no signigicant difference in the incidence of blastic transformation, and median survival for both groups was 44 mo. DBM appears to be as effective as busulfan in the treatment of the chronic phase of CGL but with a more predictable myelosuppressive action. The principal advantage of busulfan over DBM is the fact that more than half the busulfan-treated patients experienced prolonged disease control off treatment.  (+info)

De novo appearance of the ph-1 chromosome in a previously monosomic bone marrow (45,XX,-6): conversion of a myeloproliferative disorder to acute myelogenous leukemia. (6/338)

Bone marrow examination of a patient with a myeloproliferative disorder revealed monosomy for chromosome No. 6 (45,XX,-6). Two months later, during blastic crisis, reinvestigation of the bone marrow showed the presence of the Ph-1 chromosome in the previously aneuploid cell line (45,XX,-6,-22,+Ph-1). This case differs from those previously published in that the Ph-1 chromosome appeared de novo during the development of frank acute myelogenous leukemia.  (+info)

Functional and morphologic characteristics of the leukemic cells of a patient with acute monocytic leukemia: correlation with clinical features. (7/338)

The clinical course of a patient with acute monocytic leukemia and prominent infiltration of the skin and testes is described. In vitro studies demonstrated that the circulating monocyte precursors were capable of adherence to nylon fibers, and phagocytosis of bacteria and latex particles. In vivo, migration of leukemic cells to skin windows was observed. Extreme nuclear folding, marked surface activity, and morphologic features suggesting nuclear and cytoplasmic maturation were seen by light and electron microscopy. The presence of morphologically and functionally more differentiated monocytic cells may account for the marked tiuuse invasion in this patient and, possibly, in other patients with monocytic leukemia.  (+info)

Antitumor activity of thalidomide in refractory multiple myeloma. (8/338)

BACKGROUND: Patients with myeloma who relapse after high-dose chemotherapy have few therapeutic options. Since increased bone marrow vascularity imparts a poor prognosis in myeloma, we evaluated the efficacy of thalidomide, which has antiangiogenic properties, in patients with refractory disease. METHODS: Eighty-four previously treated patients with refractory myeloma (76 with a relapse after high-dose chemotherapy) received oral thalidomide as a single agent for a median of 80 days (range, 2 to 465). The starting dose was 200 mg daily, and the dose was increased by 200 mg every two weeks until it reached 800 mg per day. Response was assessed on the basis of a reduction of the myeloma protein in serum or Bence Jones protein in urine that lasted for at least six weeks. RESULTS: The serum or urine levels of paraprotein were reduced by at least 90 percent in eight patients (two had a complete remission), at least 75 percent in six patients, at least 50 percent in seven patients, and at least 25 percent in six patients, for a total rate of response of 32 percent. Reductions in the paraprotein levels were apparent within two months in 78 percent of the patients with a response and were associated with decreased numbers of plasma cells in bone marrow and increased hemoglobin levels. The microvascular density of bone marrow did not change significantly in patients with a response. At least one third of the patients had mild or moderate constipation, weakness or fatigue, or somnolence. More severe adverse effects were infrequent (occurring in less than 10 percent of patients), and hematologic effects were rare. As of the most recent follow-up, 36 patients had died (30 with no response and 6 with a response). After 12 months of follow-up, Kaplan-Meier estimates of the mean (+/-SE) rates of event-free survival and overall survival for all patients were 22+/-5 percent and 58+/-5 percent, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Thalidomide is active against advanced myeloma. It can induce marked and durable responses in some patients with multiple myeloma, including those who relapse after high-dose chemotherapy.  (+info)

Bone marrow examination refers to the pathologic analysis of samples of bone marrow obtained by bone marrow biopsy (often called a trephine biopsy) and bone marrow aspiration. Bone marrow examination is used in the diagnosis of a number of conditions, including leukemia, multiple myeloma, lymphoma, anemia, and pancytopenia. The bone marrow produces the cellular elements of the blood, including platelets, red blood cells and white blood cells. While much information can be gleaned by testing the blood itself (drawn from a vein by phlebotomy), it is sometimes necessary to examine the source of the blood cells in the bone marrow to obtain more information on hematopoiesis; this is the role of bone marrow aspiration and biopsy. Bone marrow samples can be obtained by aspiration and trephine biopsy. Sometimes, a bone marrow examination will include both an aspirate and a biopsy. The aspirate yields semi-liquid bone marrow, which can be examined by a pathologist under a light microscope and analyzed by ...
The cells in the blood and lymph system originate from stem cells in the bone marrow. A bone marrow examination is performed to diagnose lymphoma, leukemia, and metastasis to bone marrow. The examination usually includes an aspiration and/or biopsy from the iliac crest. When diagnosing Hodgkins lymphoma, an aspirate and biopsy are taken from both sides. Sometimes, aspiration from the sternum is appropriate. In special cases, the aspiration is performed with the help of image guidance in cooperation with the nuclear medicine department. A bone marrow examination involves:. ...
We report a case of breast cancer with osteolytic skull lesions which mimicked osteolytic lesions in multiple myeloma. A 60-year-old female was admitted to our hospital due to confused mentality. Laboratory tests showed the findings of an increased calcium level, kidney failure, and anemia. Multiple osteolytic lesions were detected in the ribs, spine, humerus, and pelvis on X-rays. The skull showed the punched out sign. Accordingly we initially suspected multiple myeloma; however, monoclonal protein was not detected in serum and urine and the number of plasma cells was not increased in bone marrow examination. In bone marrow examination, metastatic cancer was detected and biopsy revealed breast cancer. Finally, breast cancer with multiple metastases including those to bone, liver, and lung was diagnosed. Therefore, when a patient presents with multiple osteolytic lesions, we need to consider metastasis from solid cancer in the differential diagnosis as well as multiple myeloma ...

ABSTRACT Introduction; Hematological abnormalities are a common complication of HIV infection. Bone marrow abnormalities occur in all stages of HIV infection. Present work was carried out to study the bone marrow abnormalities in patients with HIV/AIDS. Methods: 160 patients of HIV +ve were included in the study. A complete blood count, relevant biochemical investigations, CD4 counts were done, besides a thorough history and clinical examination. HIV positive patients were classified as those having AIDS and those without AIDS according to NACO criteria. Bone marrow examination was performed for indication of anemia, leucopenia, pancytopenia and thrombocytopenia. Results: As per CDC criteria 59.81% patients had AIDS in 107 patients. The most common hematological abnormality was anemia, seen in 93.12% patients. Bone marrow was normocellular in 79.06% of non-AIDS and 79.68% of AIDS, hypocellular in 13.95%.Thrombocytopenia was seen in 4 cases of ART (4.93%) and 3 cases (4.68%) of AIDS group. ...

The patient had received several broad spectrum antibiotics with no clinical improvement. On examination, his temperature was 40.2°C and there was no evidence of Hickman catheter infection both in terms of local evidence and catheter blood cultures. Coarse crackles were noted over the base of the right lung. The liver, spleen, and peripheral lymph nodes were not enlarged. Bone marrow examination showed hypocellular marrow with no excess of blast cells. The neutrophil count was less than 0.05 × 109/l for three weeks. Cultures of the blood were repeatedly negative. Chest radiography after two courses of chemotherapy was normal. Computed tomograms of the thorax and abdomen are shown in figs 1 and2. ...
As Virchow was uncertain of the cause of the white blood cell excess, he used the purely descriptive term leukemia (Greek: white blood) to refer to the condition.. Further advances in the understanding of acute myeloid leukemia occurred rapidly with the development of new technology.. In 1877, Paul Ehrlich developed a technique of staining blood films which allowed him to describe in detail normal and abnormal white blood cells.. Wilhelm Ebstein introduced the term acute leukemia in 1889 to differentiate rapidly progressive and fatal leukemias from the more indolent chronic leukemias. The term myeloid was coined by Neumann in 1869, as he was the first to recognize that white blood cells were made in the bone marrow (Greek: µυєλός, myelos = (bone) marrow) as opposed to the spleen.. The technique of bone marrow examination to diagnose leukemia was first described in 1879 by Mosler. Finally, in 1900 the myeloblast, which is the malignant cell in AML, was characterized by ...
Survivin, and Aven are members of the inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) proteins family. They are reported to be over-expressed in many cancers including leukemia. Previous studies suggested that Survivin is implicated in both control of apoptosis and regulation of cell division. The aim of this study was to examine the expression of the two apoptotic inhibitors - Survivin and Aven-at the messenger (m)RNA level in acute myeloid leukemias (AML) in relation to the clinical and hematological findings. Thirty adult patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and 10 healthy subjects were studied. Patients were subjected to complete blood picture, bone marrow examination and immunophenotyping. Based on the French American British classification, they were subdivided to M1, M2, M3, M4 and M5. A reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RTPCR) was used to investigate the expression of Survivin, and Aven mRNA. The AML patients showed expression of Survivin (206 bp) but not Aven mRNA. In contrast, neither
A 36-year-old army engineer returned from a 6-week deployment in Afghanistan. He had complained of upper respiratory tract infection even before his travel. On return he was found to be increasingly sleepy and later developed unsteadiness, slurred speech and confusion. His initial blood tests were normal, with CSF and MRI suggesting signs of encephalitis. He continued to deteriorate, requiring intubation and ventilation. Several bacterial, viral, protozoal and fungal tests were negative. He developed pancytopenia requiring frequent packed red cell and platelet transfusions. Spleen was found to be marginally enlarged.. A bone marrow examination showed hyperplastic left shift pattern with marked granulocyte, red cell and megakaryocyte precursor activity. At this stage his EBV DNA was found to be strongly positive, with over a million copies identified in the blood. EBV was also isolated from the CSF. His pancytopenia continued to worsen, with worsening neuroinflammation on MR imaging. The ferritin ...

These are photos of me, Jonnie, undergoing a bone marrow aspiration, a diagnostic procedure that leukemia patients like me undergo periodically during treatment. I didnt have much hair then, but it all grew back. The photos were taken at the end of my first year of treatment in May of 2000. My bone marrow was examined for signs of cancer relapse and everything turned out fine. These photos may be difficult for some people to view, but this is the type of painful and frightening procedure kids with leukemia go through before being rewarded with a toy. I hope these photos will help you see for yourself why an incentive like a toy can help a child overcome fear and discomfort and reward them for their bravery or soothe them in their recovery. These photos are in series. They follow the procedure as it happens. Read them from left to right ...

My only son Max Andrei Josh Y. Gutiza is diagnosed with B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Hes only 3 years old. He was admitted at Medical Center Manila last September 14, 2017 because of fever and low platelet count. He tested negative for Dengue, twice, but because his platelet count was only 10, with 150 as a normal count, he needed blood transfusion. It was Monday, September 18, 2017 when he had Bone Marrow Aspiration. Bone marrow aspiration is a procedure that involves taking a sample from the soft tissue inside your bones. He was also tested for blood infection which came out negative. September 19, 2017, the result finally came out. As per his bone marrow aspiration result, 70% leading to B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He still needs to undergo transfusion because his platelet count is still very low. We were hoping that the remaining 30% will change the results. However, it was not the result we were praying for. Our bill with the said hospital was Php 123,000.00. We never ...
Pain is a common and difficult problem for patients with cancer. It has been reported that over 80% of cancer patients suffer from pain. Much of this pain is iatrogenic and related to procedures. Dr. Grossman recently demonstrated that most patients undergoing bone marrow biopsy have poor pain control during the procedure. Treatment of pain is almost entirely with analgesic medications, principally opioids. These medications have numerous undesirable effects such as sedation, confusion, hypotension and constipation that limit their efficacy and utility. Drs. Diette, Lechtzin, Rubin and colleagues recently demonstrated that use of nature sights and sounds (NSS), a simple, safe, and inexpensive intervention, decreases pain during fiberoptic bronchoscopy, a procedure commonly performed to diagnose cancer and to detect pulmonary complications of cancer therapy. Patients were randomly assigned to either standard care with intravenous narcotics and benzodiazepines or standard care coupled with view of ...

Bone marrow biopsy and bone marrow aspiration are procedures to collect and examine bone marrow - the spongy tissue inside some of your larger bones. Bone marrow biopsy and bone marrow aspiration can show whether your bone marrow is healthy and making normal amounts of blood cells. Doctors use bone marrow biopsy and aspiration to diagnose and monitor blood and marrow diseases, including some cancers.
Acute renal failure due to multiple myeloma is uncommon but may be the presenting feature of the disease. When it occurs, the underlying multiple myeloma is usually easily diagnosed by the presence of a serum M protein, hypercalcemia, skeletal pain, or typical bone lesions. We report here four cases of patients who, at the time they developed acute renal failure, had none of these findings nor any other historical or physical evidence of multiple myeloma. A renal biopsy in all four cases revealed the typical diagnostic features of "myeloma kidney" and led to confirmation of the diagnosis by bone marrow examination. Tamm-Horsfall protein was identified within myeloma casts and the glomerular urinary space, suggesting that tubular obstruction and retrograde urine flow precedes the development of "myeloma kidney" and acute renal failure. ...
Anemia caused by vitamin B12 deficiency resulting from inadequate dietary intake is rare in children in the modern era because of improvements in nutritional status. However, such anemia can be caused by decreased ingestion or impaired absorption and/ or utilization of vitamin B12. We report the case of an 18-year-old man with short stature, prepubertal sexual maturation, exertional dyspnea, and severe anemia with a hemoglobin level of 3.3 g/dL. He had a history of small bowel resection from 50 cm below the Treitz ligament to 5 cm above the ileocecal valve necessitated by midgut volvulus in the neonatal period. Laboratory tests showed deficiencies of both vitamin B12 and iron. A bone marrow examination revealed dyserythropoiesis and low levels of hemosiderin particles, and a cytogenetic study disclosed a normal karyotype. After treatment with parenteral vitamin B12 and elemental iron, both anemia and growth showed gradual improvement. This is a rare case that presented with short stature and ...

Cancers that begin in cells of the lymph system are referred to as malignant lymphomas. The lymph system includes the spleen, thymus, tonsils, bone marrow, lymph nodes and circulating white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes and the lymph system are part of the immune system that protects the body from disease and infection. Cancers of the lymph system are referred to as Hodgkins lymphoma or non-Hodgkins lymphoma.. Newly diagnosed lymphoma patients are required to undergo a number of tests and procedures to ensure accurate diagnosis and staging. Tests may include a lymph node biopsy, blood tests, a CT scan, PET scan and bone marrow biopsy. Some patients report that of these, the most difficult is the bone marrow biopsy.. Bone marrow, found in the center of most large bones, is a spongy material that produces red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. A bone marrow biopsy is used to evaluate how well the bone marrow is functioning and to determine if lymphoma is present. This is ...
We have evaluated the usefulness of bilateral rather than unilateral posterior iliac spine trephine biopsies in searching for lymphoma and other neoplastic diseases in the bone marrow. Two hundred and eighty-two patients with these diseases were studied. Tumor was found on only one side in 22% of patients with non-Hodgkins malignant lymphoma, in 43% of patients with Hodgkins disease, and in 36% of patients with other neoplastic processes. Thus, the second biopsy yields an additional 11% to 22% of positive biopsies. We conclude that bilateral trephine bone marrow biopsies should be routinely performed when searching for tumor in the bone marrow. ...
The bone marrow biopsy will be done using a needle (biopsy needle), which will be introduced in a bone (typically the backbone or ribs, as these contain more marrow matter). However, if the dog is suspected of having bone cancer localized in certain areas, the vet will insert the needle in the affected bone. Bone marrow biopsies can be performed in the hip bones, shoulders or thigh bones. Using the needle, the vet will extract a bit of bone marrow fluid. The needle is gently extracted and the fluid will be taken for testing. The vet may perform the analysis or he may choose to send the bone marrow sample to a pathologist. The procedure may take up to 30 minutes, depending on the bone that is being analyzed. ...
Bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) is an FDA-approved, non-embryonic stem cell treatment in which the bodys stem cells are used to spur tissue regeneration and hasten healing.. Harvested from the patients own bone marrow, these regenerative cells are injected into the injury site in the same manner as platelet rich plasma (PRP). During BMAC, your orthopaedic surgeon extracts bone marrow from the hip or pelvic bone. Spinning the marrow in a centrifuge, he or she separates the regenerative stem cells and injects them into the painful site. After just two to three weeks, patients experience increased joint and muscle stability and may pursue physical therapy to strengthen the problem area.. ...

Bone marrow is the soft, spongy part inside bones. It makes most of the bodys blood cells. Aspiration and biopsy are procedures done to take a sample of bone marrow out of the body for examination. Find out why these procedures are done and how to prepare for them.
Introduction Examination of the bone marrow (BM) aspirate and trephine biopsy is essential for the diagnosis of BM disorders. A comprehensive diagnosis of a BM disorder often requires the integration of various diagnostic approaches: peripheral blood (PB) counts and smear evaluation, BM aspirate and imprint smear, BM trephine biopsy Other investigations such as cytochemistry, immunophenotypic analysis, cytogenetic and molecular genetic techniques, Biochemical and microbiological test results, as appropriate. The aspirate and trephine biopsy provide complementary and useful information. It is recommended that both BM aspirate and biopsy be routinely performed so that respective findings can be correlated.

Hi, Friends. " My name is Russell Colico, I just hope you can spare some time to read my cause and find it in your hearts to donate. I was diagnosed with Leukemia not too long ago but still have not undergone Bone Marrow Aspiration because of financial problems. I dont have a father and my mother already has a new family which just leaves me and my sister. She is the only person left in my life to help me out. We are two siblings just trying to get by our daily lives here in Santa Rosa, Laguna. I used to work in a Call Center in Manila and my sister works as a crew member in a small business here in where we live. I left the company where i used to work because of proximity issues. I got exhausted from the long travel and my body almost gave up. I went home to Laguna to look for a new job. I luckily found a job close to where i live. Got interviewed, passed the exam and got hired but, unfortunately, my employment was withheld because I couldnt get clearance from the medical exams. Three times, ...

I have a sister who has been sick for a while, gradually getting worse. Over the last year she has lost a TON of hair, she has joint pains, shortness of breath, and very tired. She got blood work at her doctors office and he said she was very anemic and that there were some abnormal cells and he wanted her to go to a hematologist. She did. They took more blood and did a test for lupus and RA and those 2 tests were essentially negative but she was even more anemic, so they wanted to do a bone marrow biopsy. When they did the bone marrow, they did not get enough marrow to test but the bone biopsy showed caseating granulomas. They just did another bone marrow aspiration yesterday to test that and they had a real hard time getting anything to aspirate. They mentioned dust a few times.?? The pathologist said they got enough though for the doctor to make the diagnosis and that he was leaning towards 2 different things but could not say what. It will be another week before we hear anything from the ...
Highly cellular bone marrow biopsy of the WHIM-mother, with increased mature neutrophil granulocytes showing prominent nuclear segmentation. Inset: bone marrow
If your nurse said IV meds then I am sure its the same as I had. Since its not the same as a general anastetic they cant tell you you wont feel anything but I believe you wont. They told me I was talking a little bit and said "oh that stings" and they just gave me a little more medicine. Like I said I dont remember any of that or anything about the procedure at all just waking up and them telling me it was all over. Ive had this type of sedation three times now in my 15 month journey with the same result. Trust it, it works. Through the bone marrow biopsy the discovered it was in the marrow but my MD had prepared me for this by saying it will not matter. I trust him completely. Now I will be starting R CHOP on the 6th not because of the marrow but because of a large lump in my neck that they feel is my lymphoma command center (where it all started). Im nervous about it. I dont like taking anything and this is above and beyond my comfort level...nurses are not the best patients as a little ...
This procedure is done by taking out small amounts of bone marrow. Bone marrow samples are usually taken from the back of the hip (pelvic) bone. For the bone marrow aspiration, the area over the hip is numbed. A thin, hollow needle is inserted through the skin and into the hip bone. A syringe is used to pull out a small amount of liquid bone marrow. You may have some brief pain when the marrow is removed. A bone marrow biopsy is usually done just after the aspiration. A small piece of bone and marrow is removed with a slightly larger needle that is pushed down into the bone. The biopsy may also cause some brief pain. The bone marrow is then checked for leukemia cells and tested in various ways (see below).. ...

I was going to write yesterday to let everyone know that Parker was having his one month bone marrow aspiration today but I fell short on time. However, Parker did have his aspiration this morning at nine and it went well. They made five holes this time, two in one hip and three in the other. Normally there is very little bleeding afterwards, if any but today there was some in his right hip that we needed to change the gause before the first hour was up. Several hours later, there was some more blood accumulating but not nearly the amount the first time. My wife is waiting for the doctor to examine Parkers hip. We are just being cautious as we always do ...

When I was seventeen I had a bone marrow biopsy. I remember thinking, "Oh, its no big deal. They just stick a big needle in your hip, and take some of your bone marrow."

I showered! It was the most unsatisfying shower I have ever taken. Im clean; my hair is clean. But it was uncomfortable. I had to put the three little external tubes of my catheter into a plastic baggie, which I then had to tape over the entry and exit sites. I think Im going to have a sweet little scar right above my collar bone from where they inserted the catheter. (note: a good lot of this Im mentioning mostly for the shock-value. Its really not that bad). I also have two sweet matching holes in my back from the bone marrow biopsy. I seriously think its funny how many holes I have in me now. There are a lot. Hold on, one of them is bleeding. brb. alright, crisis averted. So, I can hear pretty much everything from the room next to mine. I dont know why, but the conversations of the man who is staying in there are always totally clear. Its weird. Hes on some sort of room isolation, but he always has people visiting. Im pretty sure hes a marrow transplant patient. Good luck to him. ...
Trews diagnosis came when he was only three years old. He had hurt his leg and it didnt seem to be getting better, so his family took him to the doctor. After some tests, he was sent to stay at the hospital where he underwent a bone marrow biopsy and was diagnosed with ALL. He began a three-year treatment plan, and he has now been cancer free for over 10 years!
As for who I am, I honestly cant say right now. I am not even sure that I know or that any of us really ever does know who we are. But I do know who Id like the world to see when they look at me, and I aim to get myself to that point one way or another. I can see that I am here, now, in California for several reasons. One, this is where I can get the absolute BEST care to treat my disease. My "team" of doctors has been working very hard to get things pointed in the right direction for that to happen. Sure, we have hit some snags along the way, but they are willing to listen to what I have to say and what I wish to have done (good thing for them!). After a battery of tests to ensure that I am healthy enough for the transplant, which culminated in yet another bone marrow biopsy, things look like they are right on track so far. Id also like to tell you about that biopsy, I have had this procedure done twice in the past two years and each time with less than a perfect outcome. The first time was ...
Although Jeremy is so "healthy" and active, and the doctors are so delighted with his progress, it is still hard for us not to be anxious about the results of tomorrows bone marrow aspirate.

A 59 year old white woman was seen urgently for assessment of a macrocytic anaemia. She had normal serum B-12 concentrations, confirmed on three occasions. She complained of progressively increasing lethargy, palpitations, and buzzing in the ears over about three months. She had a good, well balanced diet and was not a vegetarian. Apart from thyroxine, she was taking no regular medication. She said her father had had pernicious anaemia. On clinical examination the only clinically significant findings were a mild glossitis and pallor. A full blood count showed a substantial macrocytic anaemia and a mild reduction of the white cell count (figure). The blood film showed mild oval macrocytosis, occasional nucleated red cells, and some hypersegmented neutrophils. An urgent bone marrow examination showed megaloblastic haemopoiesis.. ...
Summary. The true incidence and prognosis of autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) in adults is unknown. We present the results of a prospective study in a population-based cohort of newly presenting adults (≥ 16 years) with ITP and platelet count of , 50 × 109/l, which took place between 1 January 1993 and 31 December 1999 in the former Northern Health Region in the UK (population 3·08 million). A total of 245 cases were confirmed by bone marrow examination with a median follow-up of 60 months (range 6-78 months). There were 134 females/111 males (1·2:1). Overall incidence was 1·6 per 105 per annum. Absolute incidence was similar for both sexes, with highest age-specific incidence in those aged , 60 years. Thirty patients (12%) presented with frank bleeding, and 28% were asymptomatic. Forty-five patients (18%) received no treatment, and 135 (55%) received first-line treatment only. Thirty patients (12%) underwent splenectomy. There were four deaths (1·6%) from bleeding and/or the ...

Another issue is flow cytometry analyses. As mentioned above, flow cytometry is essential when assessing BM involvement. Current guidelines regard a small clonal population (, 2%) as uninvolved BM [30]. However, to the best of our knowledge, no clinical study has addressed this issue. Moreover, recent advances in flow cytometry technology have caused a wide range of variation in the sensitivity of flow cytometric analyses among institutions. Thus, it is desirable to document the minimal criteria for flow cytometry technology in a standard guideline. The last issue in flow cytometry is the meaning of discordance between a bone marrow biopsy (BMB) and flow cytometry. Recently, in a study that included 757 NHL patients, there was considerable discordance between BMB and flow cytometry [33]. For example, in FL and LPLs, the discordance rates were up to 22% and 24%, respectively. Based on BMB and flow cytometry results, four subsets can be created in patients with NHL: positive BMB and positive flow ...

My Mother passed away a few years ago and on her death certificate was listed MDS. The internet is so full of all info that my head is spinning. From what I read, it is rare for MDS to be inherited so dont know if possible or not. Is my GP over reacting by requesting I go for the bone marrow/aspiration tests or is he in line with what should be done. He basically told me he did not know why I was bruising so easily, low platelets etc. so wanted to find out for himself along with me understanding the reasons for my issues.

As we look back in 2008, it has been a very rewarding and hopeful year for our family. Bennett was going through cranial radiation daily and hard chemo at the beginning of the year. He spent many days in bed and not feeling well at all.. Bennett publicly announced his confession in faith to Jesus Christ and was baptized! Amen!. He had the unanswered two week hospital stay in May with the infectious disease Drs not finding out what was wrong with him. He had over 30 tests including a bone marrow aspiration confirming he was still in remission! He had his bad sunburn that kept on getting worse. It stumped the Drs if it was even really a sunburn even after a biopsy of it. It took a long time to go away.. He had so many problems with his ankle that were pretty weird and unexplainable causing us to be terrified that the cancer had returned there. After another MRI, we were blessed to hear the news that it was only scar tissue. In July he had another hospital stay for a week with low counts and temp ...

Bone marrow: Bone marrow is collected by a procedure called aspiration and biopsy. The sample may be taken from multiple sites, but the most common site for biopsy is the pelvis. Risks of a bone marrow biopsy vary depending on the biopsy method used and the site selected for the biopsy. General risks of this procedure are infection and bleeding from the biopsy site. If you have a medical condition, or are using a medication or supplement that causes excessive bleeding, you are at a higher risk of bleeding from the procedure site. Bone marrow biopsies performed on the sternum (breastbone) have the most risk. This area is only tested on adults, and only certain types of biopsies are done on the sternum. Due to the location and thickness of the sternum, it is rare but possible to damage the heart, major blood vessels, and the mediastinum (space of the chest that holds essential organs). A puncture to these areas could lead to severe bleeding, infection, or trapped air in the chest cavity. The ...
I went to a consultation visit with my oncologist prior to treatment, and after my wife and I went in, he told us I was getting a BM biopsy after he finished speaking with us. I thought nothing of it, and had zero "prep" -- perhaps a good thing. The practice has N.P.s normally do the draw in the office. They gave me a bit of local, and did it. A short proceedure; it does not seem we were there more than 15 minutes, max. It was a bit primitive, but I do not recall it being severe, or lasting too long. They did have to "rack" me around a bit to "break through." I did not "look" (I am very squeemish by nature regarding medical proceedures anyway), but my wife describled it to me later.. They never mentioned sedation, and I do not think that sedation is routine at all in their practice (28 onclogists). It was much less painful or involved than a jaw tooth extraction, I would say. I do not recall it involving any discomfort later, but it was four years ago, and I had so many proceedures and tests ...

Subsequent studies revealed variant IgH/CCND1 fusion in 19% of the cells analyzed. Specifically, there results are positive for a variant t(11;14). Additional studies were negative for a t(14;16), trisomies 9, 11, and 15 and for deletions of 6q21, 13q14, 13q34 and 17p13.1. ...
The attending physician was James George, MD, a well-known and respected hematologist. I remember reviewing Davids peripheral smears and bone marrow specimens under a multihead microscope with Dr. George and also with David himself. Dr. George thought it appropriate for David to participate in parts of his own care. Early on in his course of illness, David decided to move his treatment to his beloved Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Even though David moved on, I stayed in touch with him.. I called David in his hospital room almost daily. He was very weak and barely able to speak at times. The more I spoke with him, the sadder I felt. Several months into his treatment, I met David one more time in a hospital hallway. He looked very frail and pale; seeing him that way hurt me deeply. He told me how his disease was progressing. I was at a complete loss for words. Any comfort or hope I could offer would have sounded hollow in my own ears.. Empathizing With Patients. Looking back, I think I ...
Sometimes the haematologist may recommend removing a sample of your bone marrow (bone marrow biopsy) so they can examine it under a microscope to check it for cancerous cells.. The sample is removed using a needle inserted into your hip bone. Local anaesthetic is normally used to numb the area where the needle is inserted, although you may experience some discomfort during the biopsy.. The procedure will last around 15 minutes and you shouldnt need to stay in hospital overnight. You may have some bruising and discomfort for a few days afterwards.. ...

May-Grunwald-Giemsa, ×1,000). Serum ferritin was elevated (3,339 µg/L) and severe hypofibrinogenemia was noted. Bone marrow examination and laboratory findings indicated hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) secondary to histoplasmosis. The patient have not recently traveled to Histoplasma-endemic areas and was HIV-negative. He was treated with intravenous amphotericin B (1 mg/kg) for 2 weeks. His fever subsided in two days and his peripheral blood counts started improving by the sixth day of treatment (day 6: hemoglobin, 10 g/dL; platelet count, 90×109/L; TLC, 3.9×109/L). Histoplasmosis has been reported mostly from eastern and southern regions of India, however, the patient was a resident of north India (Punjab). Histoplasmosis-triggered HLH in this patient who was HIV-negative and from a non-endemic region of Histoplasma is therefore very unusual. ...
ET is usually characterized by a hypercellular bone marrow, including increased numbers of megakaryocytes.

Introduction: Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), not otherwise specified, is a large B-cell lymphoma with a diffuse growth pattern and aggressive clinical course. It is divided in subgroups according to its morphology, immunophenotype, and primary site. Dissemination to bone marrow occurs in 11% to 35% of cases and can be of concordant or discordant morphology. Objective: To examine the association, the type of bone marrow involvement in relation to the primary site, morphology, immunohistochemistry of DLBCLs and to determine the cases of Epstein-Barr virus positive DLBCLs. Materials and Methods: We reviewed lymph node and extranodal biopsies as well as the respective bone marrow biopsies in all cases of DLBCL diagnosed in the Hospital General de México during the period from 2002 to 2010. We used immunohystochemistry for immunophenotype identification (Hanss algorithm) and an in-situ hybridization technique to detect presence of Epstein Barr encoded RNA (EBER). Results: We included 108 patients
AIMS: To investigate the immunohistochemical expression of CD31 (JC70) in normal and neoplastic plasma cells. METHODS: Plasma cells in bone marrow biopsies and extramedullary locations were examined. All extramedullary biopsies were formalin fixed and paraffin embedded. The bone marrow biopsies were fixed in formal acetic acid and embedded in paraffin wax. Twenty multiple myelomas (12 bone marrow and eight extramedullary deposits), 10 extramedullary plasmacytomas, and 30 biopsies with reactive plasma cells (10 bone marrow, 20 extramedullary biopsies) were stained with anti-CD31 (JC70) using the streptavidin-biotin detection system with diaminobenzidine as a chromogen. Antigen retrieval in bone marrow biopsies was achieved by pressure cooking. In all other biopsies, antigen retrieval was achieved by microwave pretreatment. RESULTS: All 20 extramedullary cases with reactive plasma cells showed intense membrane staining. Focal staining was detected in reactive plasma cells in bone marrow biopsies. ...
1. Bone marrow is commonly collected and examined when abnormalities are found in the circulating blood. The most common abnormality is a persistent shortage of one of the blood cell types. This is a serious situation and may be due to a problem in the bone marrow. Examination of marrow can often provide information about the underlying cause, and may help to predict the outcome.. 2. Bone marrow is also collected and examined to look for certain types of cancer. Some cancers start right in the cells of the bone marrow and other cancers spread to the bone marrow from elsewhere in the body. Cancer that starts in the bone marrow is sometimes called "leukemia." Examination of the bone marrow helps to identify the cancer, and reveals how seriously the marrow is affected.. 3. Occasionally, bone marrow is collected and examined to investigate other problems such as persistent fever, unexplained weight loss, high blood calcium levels (see article on Hypercalcemia), and high serum protein level (see ...
