Myelofibrosis Awareness

Myelofibrosis


What is Myelofibrosis?
Myelo= Marrow
Fibrosis= Accumulation of scar tissue

Simply put, it is a blood condition in which the bone marrow is replaced by scar tissue.
What happens?

The bone marrow is a soft fatty tissue inside of your bones.  This tissue is replaced by scar tissue.  Due to the accumulation of scar tissue, blood cells do not grow correctly.  Blood cells are very important to the body. Red blood cells carry oxygen to your tissues and organs, white blood cells fight infection, and platelets help blood clot.
