Question
Reportability--Heme & Lymphoid Neoplasms: Not sure if this should be registered or not, please advise.

Bone marrow: post polycythemic myelofibrosis

JAK2 mutations present confirming diagnosis of post polycythemic myelofibrosis. Patient does have history of polycythemia vera (PV). If this is to be registered what histology code?

Discussion


Answer
PV is reportable. There are three phases of PV. The third phase is referred to as the "spent" or "post-polycythemic myelofibrosis phase." It sounds like this patient is in the third phase of PV and this would not be reported as a new primary if PV has already been reported.
