Title: Morphological study of the bone marrow in patients injected with ThO/sub 2/

Abstract

The action of radiation on proliferative activity of blastic elements is already very well known. The particularity of our cases comes from the fact that radiation starts from the cells of RHS, where a radioactive substance was fixed many years before our observations. We can conclude, from these results, that the pathogenesis of anemia can be explained through proliferative asthenia. Alterations of granuloblastic series, although not so often, can be explained in a similar way. What is more difficult to be interpreted is noncorrelation between results of myeloid-erythroid radio and leukocyte count in peripheral blood. In fact, in bone marrow, myeloid series seems to be more depressed but, peripherically, anemia is more frequent. Correlation between the degree of bone marrow hypoplasia and the period of action of radiation was not observed.
