Iatrogenic Pathology of Bone Marrow and Lymphoid Tissue
Pp. 177-189 (13)
Bone marrow and lymphoid tissue can be damaged by medications or
radiation and are particularly susceptible to injury in bone marrow transplant recipients.
Iatrogenic bone marrow suppression is a common in-hospital complication, the
therapeutic management of which is difficult. In patients with cancer, aggressive
treatment usually induces bone marrow damage, but this can be prevented using
specific colony-stimulating factors. Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia is a distinct
lesion with unusual clinical features. Its two types of manifestation are presented in this
chapter, together with other lymphoid tissue-specific iatrogenic disorders.
