Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Idiopathic myelofibrosis is a myeloproliferative disease with poor prognosis and without sufficient therapy. Acute leukemic transformation occurs in 15% of patients. The authors report the case of a 63 year old myelofibrotic patient treated with splenectomy. During the clinical course they observed unusually prominent and persistent erythroblastosis in the peripherial blood. After a two years long, relatively stable period the disease terminated in acute myeloid leukemia.
