Abstract

Bone marrow sampling may be indicated in the evaluation of iron metabolism, fever of unknown origin, anemia, leukocytosis and other hematologic abnormalities. The commonly accepted means of marrow sampling are needle aspiration and needle biopsy. The preferred site for obtaining the sample is the iliac crest. Contraindications to the procedure include infection or previous radiation therapy at the sample site, poor patient cooperation and major coagulation defects. The assistance of a skilled technician, use of a prepackaged tray, thorough patient education, use of local anesthesia and attention to aseptic technique help simplify bone marrow sampling.
