abstract

  • The histogenesis of blasts in acute myelofibrosis is generally regarded to be of megakaryocytic origin. Three case reports are presented and 19 other reported cases were reviewed from the literature where the cells of origin appear to be myeloblasts, myelomonoblasts, lymphoblasts, or undifferentiated blasts. It is therefore postulated that acute myelofibrosis is a hemopoietic stem cell disorder, and acute megakaryocytic leukemia (FAB-M7) represents one subset of the disorder.
