Plasmacytosis in the Bone Marrow
The authors made an analysis on 582 cases of bone marrow Plasmacytosis out of 2,896 cases performed during the last 13 years from 1966 to 1978 at the Department of Laboratory Medicine, Seoul National University Hospital. Cases having 2% or more of plasma cells in differential count were selected, and the results were as follows : 1) The older patients showed the more bone marrow plasmacytosis in general, and this tendency was more prominent in 299 cases of aplastic anemia and 54 cases of Korean hemorrhagic fever. 2) Diseases with prominent bone marrow plasmacytosis other than multiple myeloma in decreasing order of degree were ; aplastic anemia, typhoid fever, hemolytic anemia, Korean hemorrhagic fever, tuberculosis, malignancies with or without bone marrow metastasis, collagen diseases, leukemias (especially acute monocytic and granulocytic), iron deficiency and other types of anemias, liver cirrhosis and idiopathic thrombo- cytopenic purpura. 3) In cases of Korean hemorrhagic fever, the patients in oliguric stage showed more prominent bone marrow plasmacytosis than those in diuretic stage. 4) In aplastic anemia, the patients with bone marrow plasmacytosis showed more prominent hyperglobulinemia than those without plasmacytosis. 5) The incidence of plasmacytic satellitosis was significantly higher in cases having both bone marrow plasmacytosis and serum hyperglobulinemia compared to cases having neither of them. This finding was more Prominent in cases of Korean hemorrhagic fever.
