FIGURE 2–1 The idea is plausible, in particular given the slow accumulation of DNA damage over the years due to background radiation, environmental mutagens, and the like. The pluripotent hematopoietic stem cell divides rarely, reproducing itself while generating a daughter cell that moves into the pathway of hematopoietic cell production (Figure 2-1). Could some of these self-replications fail to produce a new stem cell, leading to a decline over time in their number? Stem cells comprise a tiny fraction of the hematopoietic cells in the bone marrow.

BONE MARROW Bone marrow examination has a special place in the anemia work-up since it is the organ of blood production. A key issue to be addressed by the physician is whether a bone marrow examination is needed to assess a particular case of anemia.
