Abstract

Fewer than 40 cases of primary myelofibrosis have been reported in children; hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is the only available curative therapy for this disease. Here, we describe the case of a female infant diagnosed with primary myelofibrosis at the age of 6 months; she underwent successful matched unrelated bone marrow transplantation with complete resolution of disease. We discuss some unique characteristics of primary myelofibrosis in children and review outcome data for children with this disease.
