Myeloproliferative disorder
Acute MPD Acute myelogenous leukemia–myeloblastic, promyelocytic, myelomonocytic, monocytic, erythroid, megakaryocytic, eosinophilic, basophilic, acute biphenotypic–with myeloid and lymphoid markers, leukemia, and acute leukemia with lymphoid markers evolving from a prior clonal hemopathy
Subacute MPD Oligoblastic–smoldering leukemia, refractory anemia with excess blasts–see RAEB, myelomonocytic leukemia.
Chronic MPD Polycythemia vera, agnogenic myeloid metaplasia, primary thrombocythemia, chronic myelogenous leukemia–Philadelphia chromosome positive or negative, chronic monocytic leukemia, chronic neutrophilic leukemia  

myeloproliferative disorder

Any of several hematologic malignancies marked by the excessive multiplication of one or more types of blood cells. These disorders include polycythemia rubra vera, essential thrombocytosis, chronic myeloid leukemia, and idiopathic myelofibrosis.

Myeloproliferative disorder

A disorder in which the bone marrow produces too many cells too rapidly.

In vivo Hydroxyurea therapy has been suggested to increase the risk of acute leukemia for the patient with Myeloproliferative disorder (18,25) but its carcinogenic potential in other clinical settings is much less compelling and no adults up to 9 years of drug exposure have had secondary leukemia develop (26) Moreover, quantative analysis of acquired DNA mutations suggest that mutagenic potential hydroxyl urea for patient with Sickle Cell Disease is low (27) however, anecdotes of Malignancy or Myelodysplasias in patient with Sickle Cell Disease on Hydroxyurea are emerging (24,28) consideration of its carcinogenic potential should be given, because more and more sickle cell anemia may be treated with Hydroxyurea and pathology should be altered to this potential.
