Acute variceal bleeding in a
patient with idiopathic myelofibrosis successfully treated with endoscopic
variceal band ligation and chemotherapy: a case report
Idiopathic myelofibrosis is a
chronic myeloproliferative disorder characterized by leukoerythroblastosis,
massive splenomegaly, and increases in the reticular and collagen fibers in the
bone marrow. Portal hypertension is observed in some patients with idiopathic
myelofibrosis. Gastrointestinal hemorrhages, which are due mostly to the rupture
of the esophageal varices, have been sporadically reported to be an infrequent
complication of idiopathic myelofibrosis.
We report a case of a Japanese
63-year-old woman with myelofibrosis and variceal hemorrhage, with a background
of concomitant portal and pulmonary hypertension. She was successfully treated
through a combination of endoscopic variceal ligation and chemotherapy.
This is the first known report on
the successful application of endoscopic variceal ligation and chemotherapy as
the therapeutic procedure for an esophageal variceal hemorrhage in a patient
