Caption: Spleen in myeloproliferative disease. Gross specimen of an enlarged spleen in chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML), a myeloproliferative disease. CML is a form of cancer that starts in the stem cells within the bone marrow. These are the cells that go on to produce the myeloid cells and lymphocytes present in the blood. CML affects the spleen, which is seen here enlarged (splenomegaly) and engorged with blood. This is due to local blood cell proliferation together with increased blood viscosity and decreased flow.
