Focus of ALIP (abnormal location of immature precursor) can be observed. The hemopoietic cells consist of myeloid, erythroid and megakaryocytic lineage. The erythroid lineage consists of normoblast. The myeloid lineage shows maturation with focus of increased blast count < 20% (monoblast, myeloblast and promonocyte). Megakariocyte shows prominent hypolobated - micromegakaryocytic features (suggest a dysmegakariopoiesis features). Conclusions: Based on clinical data, laboratory and histopathological examination, the patient was diagnosed with therapy - related myeloid neoplasms.
