Abstract

The frequency and distribution of CD34+ cells in the bone marrow (BM) of patients with idiopathic myelofibrosis (IM) were determined using an immunohistochemical technique. The percentage and absolute number of circulating CD34+ cells were enumerated. Patients with IM exhibited a continuum of number of BM CD34+ cells ranging from 1 to 85 per 5 mm 2. The frequency of BM CD34+ cells was inversely related to the number of circulating CD34+ cells. The BM biopsy specimens obtained from 4 patients with IM who underwent allogeneic stem cell transplantation were examined sequentially. Quantitative measurement revealed that the reticulin fiber volume was progressively reduced after allogeneic stem cell transplantation. All 4 patients had normocellular marrow with normal numbers of BM CD34+ cells after transplantation. These findings suggest that the BM fibrosis and abnormal hematopoietic stem cell distribution in patients with IM is a consequence of the progeny of a malignant hematopoietic stem cell clone.
