Myelofibrosis: Causes and Risk Factors

Myelofibrosis is a rare bone marrow disorder that is caused by the abnormal production of blood cells. The exact cause of myelofibrosis is not fully understood, but it is believed to be a result of genetic mutations in the bone marrow cells.

Certain risk factors, such as exposure to certain chemicals or radiation, may also increase the likelihood of developing myelofibrosis. Other bone marrow disorders, such as polycythemia vera or essential thrombocythemia, can also lead to the development of myelofibrosis. In some cases, myelofibrosis may be secondary to other health conditions, such as infections, autoimmune disorders, or certain types of cancer.
