    Hello all,

    On my BMB report, for the bone marrow, it states “hypercellular bone marrow (80%-90%) with myeloid predominant trilineage hematopoiesis, dysmegakaryopoiesis and mild polytypic plasmacytosis”.

    What is hypercellular bone marrow? (I also don’t understand the other part, but I figure I should start with the first part first!

    Thank you in advance for any help you can give.



    The norm for cellularity is 100 less your age. If one is 60 yrs old it would be “normal” to have 40% cellularity. I am 67 with 85% cellularity thus my bone marrow is hypercellular.

    Hope this helps.
