Myeloproliferative Neoplasms


The myeloproliferative neoplasms are a group of diseases that cause platelets, white blood cells and red blood cells to grow abnormally in the bone marrow. This may cause bleeding problems, anemia, infection, or fatigue. Myeloproliferative disorders include polycythemia vera, essential thrombocytosis, myelofibrosis, chronic myelogenous leukemia, and chronic eosinophilic leukemia. Over time some of the myeloproliferative neoplasms may become acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
