Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MY-ah-lo-pro-LIF-er-uh-tiv NEE-o-plaz-uhms), or MPNs, are a group of blood disorders in which a person’s bone marrow does not function properly. Bone marrow is a spongy tissue where blood cells are primarily made. In people with MPNs there is an abnormal production of these blood cells. This can cause a host of symptoms and complications.
Once you have been diagnosed with an MPN, it is important to know the state of your condition and to get the appropriate care. Be sure to schedule regular visits and conversations with your healthcare team.
MPNs are rare blood cancers. They can be classified based on the presence or absence of a chromosomal abnormality called the Philadelphia chromosome. There are several types of Philadelphia chromosome‐negative MPNs.
The three main MPNs are:
Each type of MPN is characterized by a particular pattern of abnormal blood production that usually impacts one blood cell type more than the others.
