Abstract

Gelatinous transformation of the bone marrow is rarely found and characterized by accumulation of hyaluronic acid, fat atrophy and associated with bone marrow hypoplasia. This process has been reported to occur in severely malnourished patients. We report an anorexia nervosa patient showing pancytopenia and hypoplastic bone marrow associated with gelatinous transformation. Pathogenesis of this lesion remains unclear.
