Primary myelofibrosis (PMF) in fibrotic stage

Primary myelofibrosis (PMF) in fibrotic stage

PMF (also called CIMF) in the fibrotic stage with a leucoerythroblastic blood picture (May-Grünwald-Giemsa stain): In this patient immature granulocytes, erythroblasts and many teardrop cells (->) were found. In the fibrotic stage there is usually anaemia present and a low to normal or reduced platelet count. Myeloblasts might be present. But more than 10% already indicate blast cell excess or transition into AML.
