Myelofibrosis is a neoplasm affecting the haematopoietic stem cells of the bone marrow and this causes the following signs, symptoms and complications:
- Extramedullary haematopoiesis (haematopoiesis occurring outside the bone marrow)
- Shape abnormalities (e.g., looking like teardrops) in red blood cells
- Enlargement of the spleen and liver (hepatosplenomegaly)
- Bone marrow fibrosis (accumulation of collagen and reticulin leading to the appearance of scarring)
