Blood film of a patient with polycythaemia vera (PV)

Blood film of a patient with polycythaemia vera (PV)

The automated blood count of this 55-year old man with PV showed a normal haemoglobin concentration of 15.7 g/dL. Red blood cells were markedly increased to 8.2 million/µL, but appeared very small, as is shown in the peripheral blood film (May-Grünwald-Giemsa stain). The MCV was only 60 fL, the haematocrit was 61%. White blood cells (22,300/µL) and platelets (612,000/µL) were also elevated.
