What is fibrosis in myelofibrosis?
Myelofibrosis is characterized by an accumulation of fibrous tissue (fibrosis) or scar tissue in the bone marrow. As fibrosis increases, it impairs the bone marrow’s ability to produce healthy blood cells. This can cause numerous symptoms, including anemia, fatigue, weakness and an increased risk of bleeding and infections.
