Conditions associated with normoblastemia includes severe anaemia, asplenic/ hyposplenic state as in sickle cell disease, severe hypoxia, marrow replacements or infiltrations and extramedullary haemopoiesis [39,40].
1 In pancytopenia the marrow is customarily hypocellular as a result of primary production defects, it can be due to diminution of hemopoitic cell production, ineffective haemopoiesis or may be due to peripheral devastation of cells.
3 They also later develop extramedullary haemopoiesis, iron overload, endocrinopathies, hypercoagulability, pulmonary hypertension, gall stones and require transfusion more often.
They release IFN-y and other cytokines such as IL-2 when activated, therefore they are essential in the regulation of haemopoiesis and immune response (8).
