We aimed to study patients with splanchnic vein thrombosis (SVT) and cerebral vein thrombosis (CVT) searching for JAK2 mutations. We evaluated 14 patients (median age: 41.5 years) with portal vein thrombosis (PVT) = 7; mesenteric vein thrombosis (MVT) = 3; and CVT = 4. JAK2 V617F was assessed by allele specific PCR of peripheral blood DNA. In addition, DNA was sequenced for other JAK2 mutations. Other inherited and acquired thrombophilia risk factors were evaluated. JAK2 V617F was positive in four out of seven patients with PVT and in one CVT patient. These five patients had a diagnosis of myeloproliferative disorder (MPD) at the moment of the occurrence of thrombosis (n = 2) or later (n = 2). Patients with MVT and CVT were negative for JAK2 V617F, except one patient with CVT and a diagnosis of essential thrombocythemia. No other JAK2 mutations were found in this cohort. Besides MPD, other thrombophilia risk factors were identified in five patients. One patient had MPD as well as thrombophilia risk factor. In this group, 4 out of 7 of the patients with PVT carried the JAK2 V617F mutation with or without overt MPD. However, the investigation of other JAK2 mutations may not be necessary in patients with thrombosis at unusual sites.

    Splanchnic venous thrombosis (SVT) includes thrombosis of the hepatic, portal, and mesenteric venous system. Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are important factors of SVT in adults. Addition of JAK2V617F mutation in WHO criteria for diagnosis of MPNs has made this test a useful tool for...

    Mutations in the TET2 and ASXL1 genes have been described in approximately 14% and 8% of patients, respectively, with classic myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN), but their role as possible new diagnostic molecular markers is still inconclusive. In addition, other genes such as IDH1, IDH2, and...
