Abstract

Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) has been observed to evolve into myelofibrosis and acute myeloid leukemia. Myeloblastic leukemoid reaction has not been described in PNH. We described a patient with PNH with myelodysplasia and septicemia. The marrow aspirates showed a picture of myeloblastosis which subsided when sepsis was controlled. The myeloblastic leukemoid reaction in our patient related to overwhelming sepsis, splenectomy and overt hemolysis.
