Removal of bone marrow and evaluation of its histologic picture.
Deficiency of all three cell elements of the blood, erythrocytes, leukocytes and platelets.
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.
Suppression of erythropoiesis with little or no abnormality of leukocyte or platelet production.
A group of related disorders characterized by LYMPHOCYTOSIS; HISTIOCYTOSIS; and hemophagocytosis. The two major forms are familial and reactive.
Cells contained in the bone marrow including fat cells (see ADIPOCYTES); STROMAL CELLS; MEGAKARYOCYTES; and the immediate precursors of most blood cells.
The transference of BONE MARROW from one human or animal to another for a variety of purposes including HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION or MESENCHYMAL STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION.
A specialized CONNECTIVE TISSUE that is the main constituent of the SKELETON. The principle cellular component of bone is comprised of OSTEOBLASTS; OSTEOCYTES; and OSTEOCLASTS, while FIBRILLAR COLLAGENS and hydroxyapatite crystals form the BONE MATRIX.
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.
Abnormally high level of calcium in the blood.

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:. ...

A bone marrow biopsy may be done in a health care providers office or in a hospital. Informed consent for the procedure is typically required. The patient is asked to lie on their abdomen (prone position) or on their side (lateral decubitus position). The skin is cleansed, and a local anesthetic such as lidocaine or procaine is injected to numb the area. Patients may also be pretreated with analgesics and/or anti-anxiety medications, although this is not a routine practice. Typically, the aspirate is performed first. An aspirate needle is inserted through the skin using manual pressure and force until it abuts the bone. Then, with a twisting motion of clinicians hand and wrist, the needle is advanced through the bony cortex (the hard outer layer of the bone) and into the marrow cavity. Once the needle is in the marrow cavity, a syringe is attached and used to aspirate (suck out) liquid bone marrow. A twisting motion is performed during the aspiration to avoid excess content of blood in the ...
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 ...

A 36 year old man with acute myeloid leukaemia presented with recurrent episodes of fever and a three day history of right sided pleuritic pain and left upper abdominal pain after two cycles of chemotherapy. 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
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a highly fatal disease. Therefore, accurate predictors of clinical outcome can contribute to the design of appropriate treatment for individual patients. Proviral integration of Moloney virus-2 (PIM2) is a key mediator of hematopoietic cell growth and apoptotic resistance. Nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) activation by Pim-2 is required for its antiapoptotic function. The aim of the present study was to assess PIM-2 and NF-κB ex¬pression in adult patients with AML and to determine their correlation with the induction outcome. This study was conducted on 90 patients with de novo AML. Using real time polymerase chain reaction RT-PCR, PIM2 and NF-κB expression was analyzed. Patients were followed up by bone marrow examination on day 28 after induction to assess the response to chemotherapy. There was an overexpression of both PIM-2 and NF-κB in patients before induction. After induction, those who failed to respond to induction therapy had higher expression levels ...

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 ...
It has been a while since my last update. Too long. A lot has happened since June 26th. On June 26th I had one of my full doctor appointments: complete blood count, doctor visit, bone marrow aspiration and methotrexate infusion. My typical visit every three months and this was going to be my 11th bone marrow aspiration. Well things were not so typical. First white blood cell count was low. It was 3.1. Normally it has been between 5 and 6. In fact it had not been that low since heavy chemotherapy in July 2005. At least I did have enough neutrophils, per the doctor. Turns out that there was more bad news for me. I am very near the end of my treatment so we discussed my medical care future. My doctor is referring me to an internist for general care. She also mentioned, as a cancer survivor, I am at higher risk for other cancers, I need to have my prostate checked in the next couple of years (oh joy, I am 38 years old) and due to the medications and chemotherapy I had to fight my leukemia, I was at ...
The diagnosis took everyone by complete surprise, even the doctors, - Teddys mom. Teddy and his family went in for his regularly scheduled two year checkup, when out of the blue, his test results showed his hemoglobin and white blood cell count were unusually low. Teddy was referred to another hospital two hours from their home where doctors continued to monitor his dropping blood levels for the next three weeks. They originally thought he had a condition known as Transient Erythroblastopenia of Childhood (TEC) - a slow development of anemia, usually characterized by an unhealthy pale appearance. They finally admitted him after his levels continued their roller coaster-like extremes. After blood transfusions and a bone marrow aspiration test, Teddy was diagnosed with leukemia. The diagnosis took everyone by complete surprise, even the doctors, shared Megan, Teddys mom.. Within days of his diagnosis, he had a port implanted, a lumbar puncture and a bone marrow aspiration. Emotionally, their ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Application of the immunoperoxidase technic to bone marrow trephine biopsies in the classification of patients with monoclonal gammopathies. AU - Peterson, L. C.. AU - Brown, B. A.. AU - Crosson, J. T.. AU - Mladenovic, J.. PY - 1986/1/1. Y1 - 1986/1/1. N2 - This study evaluated the utility of the immunoperoxidase method as applied to bone marrow sections in the diagnosis of patients with monoclonal gammopathies. Intracellular immunoglobulin light chains were identified in fixed, decalcified bone marrow biopsy sections from 66 patients with monoclonal proteins, using an avidin-biotin-peroxidase complex immunoperoxidase method. In all cases the predominant light chain identified in the bone marrrow biopsy correlated with the monoclonal light chain identified in the serum. In addition, a light chain ratio was defined that correlated with the clinical diagnoses. The light chain ratios were highest in patients with multiple myeloma and were significantly different from those with ...
BACKGROUND: Pancytopenia is not a disease entity but a triad of findings that may result from various disease processes, primarily or secondarily involving the bone marrow. Bone marrow aspiration and biopsy evaluation along with good clinical correlation is of utmost importance to evaluate the causes of pancytopenia and planning further investigations.. AIMS: The present study was a prospective clinicohaematological study undertaken to analyse the various causes of pancytopenia by evaluating bone marrow aspiration and biopsy and correlating with clinical findings, complete blood counts and peripheral blood picture.. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty patients of pancytopenia were included in the study in which relevant history and physical examination findings were recorded. Bone marrow aspiration and biopsy were performed simultaneously in all cases. Perls stain was done in all cases and special stains like MPO, PAS and reticulin were also done wherever necessary.. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: The ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Detection of metastatic neuroblastoma in bone marrow biopsy specimens with an antibody to neuron-specific enolase.. AU - Crary, G. S.. AU - Singleton, T. P.. AU - Neglia, J. P.. AU - Swanson, P. E.. AU - Strickler, J. G.. PY - 1992/5. Y1 - 1992/5. N2 - To verify the practical utility of immunohistochemical analysis of bone marrow biopsy specimens in patients with neuroblastoma, we compared the results of routine histologic examination of 68 specimens with the results of immunohistochemical detection of tumor cells using an antibody to neuron-specific enolase (NSE). A commercially available polyclonal antibody to this enolase isoform consistently reacted with the neoplastic cells in biopsy specimens with histologic features diagnostic of (24 specimens) or suspicious for (one specimen) metastatic neuroblastoma. Immunohistochemical double-staining techniques documented that the NSE-positive neoplastic cells also reacted with antibodies to chromogranin and synaptophysin. Notably, ...
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.

Background: At least 350 million people live with depression, and it is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Symptoms of depression are often overlooked and untreated among the elderly because they coincide with other problems encountered during this age. The aim of this study was to assess the rate of depressive symptoms and associated risk factors among the elderly. Materials and Methods: A community-based, cross-sectional study was conducted among 440 individuals belonging to the elderly population from November 2013 to October 2014. A five-item version of the Geriatric Depression Scale was used to rate the depressive symptoms among the elderly besides asking socio-demographic details. Data were collected, coded and entered into Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, and it was analyzed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences version 16 software (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, United States). Univariate analysis was performed using chi-square test and odds ratio. Binary logistic regression ...

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. ...
Myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells of the blood. Symptoms include early osteoporosis, hypercalcemia, hyperviscosity of the blood, low red and white blood cell counts, low platelet count, cryoglobulinemia, and amyloidosis. Tests to diagnose multiple myeloma include blood and urine tests, bone marrow examination, X-rays, MRIs, PET scans, and regular monitoring. Multiple myeloma treatment includes chemotherapy, radiation, medications, and stem cell transplantation. Life expectancy for multiple myeloma is a 30% five-year survival rate.
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.. ...

During bone marrow puncture, blood and immune cells are taken from the bone marrow of the iliac crest or sternum. It is used to detect leukemia, lymphoma or chronic anemia. The collection takes place under local anesthesia, but there may still be brief pain during the suctioning of the cells.
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.

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 ...

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).. ...
