Improvement of erythropoiesis during treatment with deferiprone in a patient with myelofibrosis and transfusional hemosiderosis.
Histologic examination indicated the following for all animals: zonal bridging (largely midzonal and centrilobular) or massive liver necrosis with Councilman bodies, varying degrees of macrovacuolar and microvacuolar steatosis, and pleocellular (mainly lymphohistiocytic) inflammatory infiltrates, accompanied by hemorrhage and hemosiderosis (Figure 2, panels A, B; online Technical Appendix Table 1, https://wwwnc.
3%), erythrophagocytosis (57%), lymphoid hyperplasia (55%), central follicular necrosis (49%), lymphoid rarefaction (45%), hemosiderosis (37%), and inflammatory infiltrate of plasma cells (6%).
Histological lesions of pulmonary, hepatic and splenic erythrophagocytosis and hemosiderosis were found in 23 of 24 birds.
Histopathologic findings include medial hypertrophy and muscularization of arterioles, moderate intimal fibrosis, medial hypertrophy and arterialization of veins, dilatation of lymphatics, interstitial edema, interstitial fibrosis, and hemosiderosis (Figure 3).
The late complications are related to residual cavity surgery which was in contact to the wall of lateral ventricle through the foramen of Monro causing recurrent bleeding that results in hemosiderosis, epididymitis of wall ventricle and consequently cerebrospinal fluid flow obstruct associated to cranial nerves (1,2,3).

Hypocalcemia increases as the patient grows older because the need for transfusions also rises as a consequence of increasing growth, expansion of bone marrow, hypersplenism or from auto antibody production which causes hemosiderosis and organ dysfunction.
Most adverse events were treatment site reactions such as bruising, soreness and hemosiderosis, which were usually mild to moderate and short in duration (lasting about 2 weeks).
