458 Possible Causes for Erythrocytosis, Polycythemia, Thromboembolism

  • Myeloproliferative Disease

    BACKGROUND: Splenectomy is a risk factor for both portal-vein and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bone marrow fibrosis is also detected in the spent phase of chronic myelogenous leukemia and polycythemia vera. See Workup for more detail.[emedicine.com] These data suggest that erythrocytosis and granulocytosis in JAK2(V617F) mice are the net result of a complex interplay between cell intrinsic and extrinsic factors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polycythemia Vera

    BACKGROUND: Patients with polycythemia vera (PV) are at increased risk of thromboembolic events (TEs), which are key contributors to reduced overall survival compared with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] as a primary polycythemia.[symptoma.com] ERYTHROCYTOSIS AND POLYCYTHEMIA VERA 1. In patients with erythrocytosis, which of the following is not characteristic of polycythemia vera?[mdedge.com]

  • Secondary Polycythemia

    KEYWORDS: obesity; phlebotomy; polycythemia; venous thromboembolism[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] polycythemia (SP).[symptoma.com] Out of these 53 patients, 28 (53%) patients had PV and 25 (47%) patients had secondary erythrocytosis.[bloodjournal.org]

  • Eisenmenger Syndrome

    Chronic hypoxia caused by Eisenmenger syndrome may result in polycythemia with resultant hyperviscosity and bilateral central retinal vein occlusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When bunazosin was stopped, the erythrocytosis increased, but when it was resumed, the erythrocytosis and general fatigue diminished.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Recurrent pulmonary thromboembolism was considered the most probable diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Essential Thrombocythemia

    Patients with ET and PV are at an increased risk for thromboembolic and hemorrhagic events.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] IM - Review First Online: 30 September 2009 Abstract The classic myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) include polycythemia vera and essential thrombocythemia; their molecular[doi.org] […] at diagnosis and for patients who subsequently develop thrombocytosis, leukocytosis, or erythrocytosis during follow-up, even for CML patients in complete cytogenetic response[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polycythemia

    […] well-recognized complication of successful renal transplantation. 1 The clinical importance of polycythemia in this setting is largely related to an increased incidence of thromboembolic[jamanetwork.com] Secondary polycythemia in which the production of erythropoietin increases appropriately is called physiologic polycythemia.[en.wikipedia.org] ERYTHROCYTOSIS AND POLYCYTHEMIA VERA 1. In patients with erythrocytosis, which of the following is not characteristic of polycythemia vera?[mdedge.com]

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Pulmonary embolism is the most serious complication of venous thromboembolism, with an elevated case/fatality rate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] For example, elevations in the hematocrit or platelet count, especially if splenomegaly is present, can suggest a myeloproliferative disorder 1, 5 ; polycythemia or thrombocytosis[aafp.org] She had a history of recurrent pulmonary embolism and unexplained secondary erythrocytosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thrombocytosis

    Extreme thrombocytosis (PC 1000 10 9 ) is associated with increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in primary thrombocytosis leading to the use of acetylsalicylic acid[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] IM - Review First Online: 30 September 2009 Abstract The classic myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) include polycythemia vera and essential thrombocythemia; their molecular[doi.org] […] is found in the vast majority of patients with polycythemia vera (PV) and this change is proposed to be one of diagnostic tools for PV, 1 while the presence of idiopathic erythrocytosis[nature.com]

  • Familial Polycythemia

    While low-dose aspirin can be considered for the prevention of thromboembolic events, no evidence of efficacy exists.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Their differentiation from polycythemia vera (PV) is crucial to avoid therapy which is otherwise reserved for PV patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In some cases, the cause of erythrocytosis is unknown. Familial erythrocytosis can have different inheritance patterns depending on the gene involved.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ayerza Syndrome

Secondary polycythemia 5.[enotes.tripod.com] "Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension". Circulation. 113 (16): 2011–20. doi : 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.105.602565. PMC 4357025.
