Book Chapter
Chapter 12 of the book "Hematology in Practice" is presented. It focuses on chronic myeloproliferative disorders (CMPD). It describes the clinical features and symptoms of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), pathophysiology, and laboratory diagnosis. It discusses the link between erythroid activity and progression of polycythemia vera (PV), as well as prognosis for this condition. Also included are the peripheral blood and bone findings in essential thrombocytopenia, along with the causes of relative thrombocytosis.
