Molecular pathology of myeloproliferative neoplasms.

Klco JM, Vij R, Kreisel FH, Hassan A, Frater JL.


Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs; formerly chronic myeloproliferative disorders) are a class of myeloid hematologic malignancies that represent a stem cell-derived expansion of 1 or more hematopoietic cell lineages. The current 2008 World Health Organization system recognizes 8 types of MPN: chronic myelogenous leukemia, chronic neutrophilic leukemia, polycythemia vera, primary myelofibrosis, essential thrombocythemia, chronic eosinophilic leukemia, mastocytosis, and myeloproliferative neoplasm, unclassifiable. This review summarizes the salient characteristics of the MPNs, with emphasis on recent developments in the molecular pathophysiology and therapeutic monitoring of these disorders.
