OBJECTIVE: To investigate the complications and conversions in myeloproliferative disorders (MPD). METHODS: Three hundred and fifty six patients with MPD were reviewed, including 78 with etiologic thrombocythemia (ET), 93 with primary myelofibrosis (MF), 185 with polythythemia vera (PV). The clinical observation, follow-up, analysis with SPSS statistic software were performed. RESULTS: Out of the 356 cases, 101 (28.5%) developed thromboembolic events, 81 (22.8%) hemorrhage, 60 (16.9%) hypertension, 20 (5.6%) coronary heart disease, 3 (0.8%) hemolysis and 1 (0.3%) gastrointestinal ulcer, 2 (0.6%) calculus and 1 (0.3%) bone marrow necrosis. Twenty four patients (6.7%) developed MF (9 in ET, 15 in PV), 2 (0.6%) erythrocytosis (1 in ET, 1 in MF), 3 (0.8%) thrombocythemia (all in PV), 5 (1.4%) acute leukemia (2 in ET, 3 in MF) and 1 (0.3%) multiple myeloma (in ET). Eleven cases (3.1%) died, 5 (1.4%) from acute leukemia, 2 (0.6%) fatal hemorrhages, 1 (0.3%) each myocardial infarction and infectious shock, 2 (0.6%) unknown causes. CONCLUSION: Embolism and bleeding were the main complications in MPD. Conversions among ET, MF and PV hematological malignancies could occur.
