  • Hairy Cell Leukemia

    Practitioners should beware of erroneous diagnosis of aplastic anemia owing to a dry-tap bone marrow aspirate with hypocellular bone marrow.[] The diagnosis is best made on a bone marrow biopsy as an increase in reticulin fibers is present with hairy cell infiltrates in the bone marrow and often results in a "dry[] The extent of bone marrow effacement in hairy cell leukemia is variable.[]

  • Primary Myelofibrosis

    This is known as a ‘dry tap’. The bone marrow trephine biopsy typically shows abnormal fibrosis of the marrow cavity.[] When late in the disease progression an attempt is made to take a sample of bone marrow by aspiration , it may result in a dry tap, meaning that where the needle can normally[] Attempts to perform a bone marrow aspirate and biopsy are often complicated by a dry tap. Special stains of the bone marrow biopsy demonstrate increased fibrosis.[]

  • Acute Leukemia

    Bone marrow dry tap is common. Bone marrow biopsy show increased fibroblasts and/or increased reticulin and presence of greater than 30% blast cells.[] […] although on occasion a “dry tap” can also be due to the patient’s marrow pathology.[] Two common problems are a marrow biopsy sample consisting mainly of cortical bone and a hemodilute marrow aspirate lacking marrow particles and consisting mainly of blood,[]

  • Acute Panmyelosis with Myelofibrosis

    As a consequence of myelofibrosis and dry tap, bone marrow cytology and cytogenetic analyses are only available in a minority of cases.[] Bone marrow aspirate was a dry tap. Bone marrow biopsy showed increased cellularity with panmyelosis [Figure 2] .[] MARROW INTERPRETATION: The aspirate is essentially a dry tap.[]

  • Autosomal Dominant Osteopetrosis Type 2

    Bone marrow aspiration was dry tap.[] Bone marrow aspiration in such cases is difficult and usually leads to dry tap. Trephine biopsy is essential in these cases to obtain bone marrow picture.[] Based on peripheral smear finding, bone marrow aspiration and biopsy was advised and was obtained from posterior superior iliac spine.[]

  • Acute Megakaryocytic Leukemia

    Bone marrow aspiration returned dry tap. Bone marrow biopsy done showed normal bony trabeculae with fibrotic marrow spaces with normal hematopoisis suppressed.[] Bone marrow aspirate was a dry tap. Bone marrow biopsy showed increased cellularity with panmyelosis [Figure 2] .[] The first bone marrow aspirate was a dry tap.[]

  • Bone Marrow Aspiration

    Naturally trephine biopsies have definitive advantages over aspirates in case of dry tap bone marrow aspirates as a result of fibrosis or densely packed bone marrow by tumour[] What is dry tap?
