ABSTRACT
An encyclopedia entry for "myelosclerosis" is presented. It refers to an increase of fibrous tissue within the bone marrow. The condition may be primary, or with no obvious cause, or secondary, or resulting from another bone marrow disease. The main symptoms of myelosclerosis are those of anaemia, as well as night sweats, enlargement of the spleen, loss of appetite, and weight loss. Treatment of primary myelosclerosis includes blood transfusions to relieve symptoms, while treatment of secondary myelosclerosis depends on the underlying cause.
