The spleen may be greatly enlarged before the onset of symptoms. Treatment that reduces the leucocyte count to normal usually restores the spleen to normal size. Much rarer features at presentation include non-specific fever, lymphadenopathy, visual disturbances due to leucostasis (a form of hyperviscosity caused by an extremely high white cell count) or retinal haemorrhages, splenic pain due to infarction, gout and occasionally priapism. The commonest physical sign at diagnosis is an enlarged spleen (Fig.

Patients with pre-existing vascular disease will also be at higher risk of such complications. 5 Toe ischaemia in a patient with essential thrombocythaemia. Treatment and survival All patients should receive daily low-dose aspirin, unless contraindicated because of allergy, bleeding or peptic ulceration. This reduces the risk of vascular occlusion but may increase the risk of haemorrhage, particularly at very high platelet counts. Reduction of the platelet count with cytoreductive agents (daily hydroxyurea, or intermittent low-dose busulfan in elderly people) reduces the incidence of vascular complications and appreciably improves survival in older patients (from a median of about 3·years in untreated patients to 10·years or more in treated patients).

The Ph chromosome is derived from a normal 22 chromosome that has lost part of its long arm as a result of a balanced reciprocal translocation of chromosomal material involving one of each pair of chromosomes 9 and 22; thus the translocation is t(9;22)(q34;q11). The Ph chromosome (also known as 22q–) therefore appears somewhat shorter than its normal counterpart, and the 9q+ somewhat longer than the normal chromosome 9. The Ph chromosome carries a specific fusion gene known as bcr– abl, which results from juxtaposition of part of the abl proto-oncogene (from chromosome 9) with part of the bcr gene on chromosome 22.
