There are six types of chronic myeloproliferative disorders. One of these types, primary myelofibrosis, is where blood stem cells do not develop into normal, mature blood cells, and fibers in the blood marrow become thick. This creates decreasing numbers of blood cells, and at some point organs such as the spleen compensate by producing blood cells. This condition is usually diagnosed with a physical exam and complete blood count, or CBC.
