It is crucial to role out CML by performing the bcr gene rearrangement test, since the therapeutic approach in CML is very different compared to therapy in essential thrombocythemia, polycythemia vera, or agnogenic myeloid metaplasia with myelofibrosis.
It can be distinguished from agnogenic myeloid metaplasia by the absence of splenomegaly, teardrop RBCs and leukoerythroblastosis in peripheral blood smears, and from acute megakaryoblastic leukemia by the absence or small percentages of blasts of megakaryocytic origin [17].
Myelofibrosis (also called agnogenic myeloid metaplasia) is a myeloproliferative disorder in which the bone marrow is initially over-active but then develops scar tissue (fibrosis).
Hypothesis: splenic filtration and the pathogenesis of extramedullary hematopoiesis in agnogenic myeloid metaplasia.
Excluded from this discussion are polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia, and agnogenic myeloid metaplasia, which are also considered myeloproliferative disorders along with CLMO, but are generally not leukemic.
