PLEASE EXPLAIN WHAT IS MYELOPROLIFERATIVE SYNDROME AND TREATMENT. ALREADY HAVE HAD SPLENECTOMY AND NOW HAS PATHOLOGICAL FRACTURE OF FEMUR.
Response from Dr. Bartlett
Myeloproliferative syndromes involve the excess growth of certain bone marrow cells which are abnormal to the detriment of normal cells. In a sense, myeloproliferative syndromes are related to leukemia and may require similar treatments. The assistance of an expert in Hematology/Oncology will be crucial for your health.
