Extramedullary haemopoiesis

Classical appearances of extra-medullary haemopoiesis with the ancillary signs supporting a patient with thalassemia, one the of main patient groups who present with this condition.

- large paravertebral soft tissue masses ( not lymph nodes )

- coarse sclerosis of the bony skeleton ( secondary chnages of thalaseemia )

- splenectomy ( removed due to repeated infarts )

- high attenuation liver - due to multiple blood transfusions

It makes for a fantastic FRCR 2B long case or viva case for discussion.
