Revision 6 for 'Extramedullary hematopoiesis'All Revisions
Classical appearances of extra-medullary hematopoiesis 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.
