When the primary sites of hemopoiesis in the adult fail, as in hemoglobinopathies (especially thalassemia and sickle cell disease), various extramedullary sites take on the role of blood formation. Extramedullary hemopoiesis favors certain sites such as the liver, the spleen, and the paraspinal regions of the thorax and rare the process can involve virtually any organ or tissue and can often manifest… CONTINUE READING
