Abstract

The case of a patient with myelofibrosis and painful osteolytic lesions is described. Biopsy of the involved bone demonstrated myeloid proliferation. Foci of myeloid metaplasia may occasionally result in clinical disability, with bone pain and rarefaction. Myeloid metaplasia should be considered when these symptoms and signs occur in the setting of myelofibrobrosis. The role of radiation therapy as a palliative maneuver remains uncertain.
