  • Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia

    Because hyperviscosity syndrome can be lethal, it must be recognized and managed early.[] Hyperviscosity syndrome is treated with plasmapheresis.[] Plasmapheresis should be used for patients with symptomatic hyperviscosity and before rituximab for those with high serum IgM levels to preempt a symptomatic IgM flare.[]

  • Leukostasis

    The management includes hydration, cytoreduction, prevention of tumor lysis and, rarely, leukapheresis in cases complicated by leukostasis and hyperviscosity syndrome.[] Leukostasis is a reduction in blood flow related to hyperviscosity.[] […] doi: 10.1097/01.ccm.0000440532.52819.78 Poster Session: Case Reports: PDF Only Abstract Article Metrics Metrics Introduction: Hyperviscosity syndrome (HVS) refers to a combination[]
