The polycythaemias are usually classified as relative and absolute.1 Relative polycythaemia is a condition in which the patient characteristically has an elevation of the hematocrit level without an elevated red cell mass but it is due to contraction of the plasma volume, in contrast the absolute polycythaemias are accompanied by an actual increase in the red cell mass.1 Polycythaemias can also be classified according to the response of their erythroid progenitor cells to growth factors like erythropoietin or the circulating levels of it.1,2 Primary polycythaemias are characterized by increased sensitivity of the erythroid progenitors to regulatory growth factors, as a result of acquired somatic or inherited mutations expressed by progenitor cells.
